Tummy tuck drains have stopped after one day

My Tummy tuck drains seemed to have stopped after only a day. Is this normal? I thought I was supposed to drain for longer.

    If that’s the case, consider yourself lucky. Everyone is different.

    Mine did as well and changed to a little bit of yellowish color

    I’m worried about it. Should I not be?

  4. Rebekah says:

    No my Dr told me I was fine. You might might have a little more drainage once you get up and moving around more

    Yup walk plenty, it does look like apple juice. I would see bits of fat in there and spots of oil (also fat) pretty neat LOL

  6. Stephanie says:

    Ok thanks ladies

    I found the whole tummy tuck drainage tube interesting…watching it go from bright red, to deeper red, to lighter…watered down colored…and see the fat in it is cool…LOL…well, it is!
