I had my RNY on the 14th. I did not need a drain, just a catheter.
We were told that any blood in stool or urine must be reported to the surgeon's office. Is your tummy tight or soft? Do you have pain? We were told to take our temperature with every intake and to keep a diary/log. Is your temp normal? Any stomach pain that lasts for more than 15minutes and/or increases is an emergency.
If you have all these facts you will be able to give them more information.
So please call or visit your emergency rooms!!!
It is better to have gone and to be told that everything is fine, than not to go and add more stress on yourself, even if everything is fine.
