Re: another question

My husband had his major tubes removed after three weeks.  The smaller pediatric tubes where removed after six weeks.  Hope this helps.

Re: another question

I had both of mine removed at about 3 weeks.  I had a very mild infection afterwards but it only lasted one night and didn't even require antibiotics.   Scars took about a year to completely heal.  They weren't wounds during that year, just scaley (s;?) which went away.  I used alo on them.

Most of Mums were gone within 6 weeks, but she had to keep one on for 2 months, due to an internal leak of some description.
