Drain back in again

Well Christmas Eve and Christmas Day has been fun had to go to hospital as suddenly a tiny little bit that had leaked and was under control Tuesday decided it was going to pour out of me even though when scanned on Friday morning there was nothing so a trip to hospital at 10 on Christmas Eve to try and get it under control thankfully one of my breast nurses was on and she was fantastic at calming me down,she fixed me all up so I could get my little girl home and come back Christmas Day,came back today and my fav nurse Evelyn was on she's amazing and saw the surgeon on call and he felt it best to get a vacuum wound seal on the leak and managed to find where the fluid was coming from and it was from behind the implant so he's popped in a new drain behind it to get it fixed,wasn't the day I had planned but due to the fantastic staff at hospital they fixed me all up in a couple of hours I felt so bad for them having to be there so took big box of chocolates up. So will see what happens now with all my wee drains. Happy Christmas x
