Just when you think you are out of the woods another tree gets in the way! When my husband had his Whipple Surgery last October he ended up with 3 drainage sites. Only one has healed completely. The other 2 seem to heal then open again and we go back to heavy guaze or an ostomy bag. Has anyone had any experience with these lovely drainage sites? The DR told him last week if they don't heal we will look into closing them. Why the long wait and we are curious as to why they just don't close up on their own. Otherwise he is doing just fine. Right on schedule. Thanks.
