Topic: External drains-long term?
Hi, wonder if anyone can ring in here with their external drain experiences? my brother is newly diagnosed, had an external drain put in 10 days ago, having problem now with leakage. Are these a permanent part of his life now? Will the external drain eventually go away and be replaced by a metal stent? How long have some of you had them? Hoping to give him some positive, or at least helpful, information when i see him tomorrow!
