Topic: Leaking drains/holes-is this common?
Help! my brother has been in the hospital since Monday battling leaking bile...they've re-done or moved his drain tubes every day and today he said he's not leaking out the tube hole-yet-but is leaking out one of the new empty holes from a previous tube. One of the doctors came in this morning and said that "we can't keep you" but yet they can't let him go while he's leaking! He called him the "mystery man" which didn't inspire confidence. He's starting to have some anxiety over why this is continuing, and I want to be able to tell him this isn't unusual...anyone have the same experience? The big doctor came in a bit ago and said the old hole should dry up in day or so and isn't concerned.
my brother is concerned that even if it stops leaking, he'll go home and it will all start over again! how do you recognize that it's plugging up?
