The drain can last for weeks, However, it depends on your surgery and the amount of drainage coming out from the surgical cuts and patients are expected to carry the

drains pulling at their bodies anywhere they go including going to work, school runs, bathing, cooking,sleeping etc. Consequently, Some people drains alot while others drains little and according to oncological experts the drainage is usually removed when the drainage is 30 mL or less over 24 hours.

Patients and caregivers(a person who takes care of the patients) must also record the daily readings of the drains morning and evening(ie atleast twice a day) in a drainage log and then brings it in the next follow-up medical appointments in order for the surgeon/Doctor to decide when to remove the drains.

This is what the apps Does:
