So much for no draining

Well I thought all was going good,till yesterday they drained 480 ml out of my right side and then today another 100ml plus they think I have infection to boot now.Feeling totally drained today from it all,wondering why before my reduction back in June was the last time I saw the psychologist I would have thought given that done mastectomy and reconstruction that they would have wanted to chat again given how big a operation it was and how much it changes things in life. Well back to hospital on Friday to see how things are going fingers crossed I don't need anymore draining.
