about drains

Hey everyone--

I want to thank you all for the great advice you offered about the surgery. I had mine last Thursday with Medalie in Cleveland (double incision with nipple grafting), and so far so good. I get my drains out on Wednesday, but in the meantime, the draining is funky. So more advice...

For days there's been very, very little draining. There was no clotting, just little juice. And then yesterday, I started feeling pressure under my surgical binder, like something was swelling up. This morning I awoke to find the left drain almost half-full, and the right one still pretty empty. What's going on? Am I doing something wrong to cause this build-up in one side? Any suggestions?

Thanks, guys, for everything.
