yes i can help you out guys as i didnt need drains either in my op yesterday.

basicly you just get sewed up and what little fluid there is leaks out the incision just under the arm!, there was only about a table spoon full came out of my left hand side and about a teaspoon full from the right hand side and it seems as tho its stopped and has dried up now.

hope this helps.

Chris.

What happens if they close you fully up? does it find another way out?

cheers :)

I didnt have drains,

I am pretty sure that in most cases any fluid build up is absorbed by your body. It doesnt need to be drained out, the drain concept is for more rapid healing in certain cases.

I think that you want any incisions to be closed up as tight and neat as possible to avoid scaring.

Yes like what daddynubbie say your body will absorb the fluid back in, think of it as a black eye!..your eye swells with fluid to protect the area that has been traumatised and your body will heal this area and reabsorb the fluid without having to drain the injury, but gyne trauma is on a larger scale ofcourse.

well i guess i can answer my own question since ive been thru it now.
i had small cuts made, prob not more than 2mm.  a little plaster was put over them, for any gunk to ooze out naturally.  not alot come out, makes me wonder why they use drains in the first place.

And these little cuts just close themselves?
