work / drains/ vest after surgery?
« on: January 24, 2007, 12:44:25 PM »
How hard is it to work a desk job starting 3 days after surgery?

I would think it would be OK.

Someone said something about drains "getting in the way"...they're not that big are they?  Just wear a loose shirt over it and I'd think you'd be OK, right?

I'm counting on the pain not being there that much after surgery.

The drains are small tubes that go into your body at a small incision. The tube connects to a clear rubber bulb that is very similar to the bulb, yet smaller, on a gas can connection to an outboard boat motor. A loose shirt that buttons in the front or a sweat suit jacket work real well. You just don't want to snag the tubes on the arm of a chair, desk drawer handle, door knob, etc. That will pull at where the tube enters your body and not feel good.
