Always a Drain or Port? Binder?

Recommended Posts

Do all patients have a drain or port after surgery? I had my band out six months ago, so I'm required to stay a little longer than most straight VSG patients. How long does the drain stay in?

I'm really most curious about the three or four days I'm going to be "stuck" at the Marriott following surgery. And should I bring an abdominal binder? It was very helpful after the band surgery.

Thanks in advance!

My advise is to consult the OCC surgery coordinator. I personally never had a drain when I had revision surgery from Band to Sleeve. And I don't remember being stuck at the hotel. The revision surgery was pretty much identical to the Band surgery as far as recovery. Pretty much an easy peasy surgery.
