No More Drains...or other instruments of torture!

I'm two weeks post op and I got my last drain out today! Hooray!!!!
This last drain was really hurting the whole two weeks while it was in there. It can sometimes hurt when the drain get pulled out, but I didn't even feel it as the nurse was taking it out. The first time I realized she had even done it was when I glanced over and saw her putting it in the trash can. (I had been talking to the doctor as the nurse did it...and was distracted by the conversation.) Sweet!
All the bandages came off today too for the first time....it felt so good to have everything off.....aaaah. I felt like I could stand up straight and take in a deep breath at last.
No more 24 hours a day wearing the torture garment (euphemistically known as a surgical compression bra) either.
