Am I in any danger of having an infection after bulb popped off the drain tube?
I’ve Had two drains. One was removed this week the other next week. While draining the remaining tube the bulb completely popped off the tube. This only lasted a few seconds but was long enough to scare me since my nurse told me to never let it get unplugged from the hose end. I did hurry and replug the drain once I realized what happened. There are a few blood clots that get stuck in tube from time to time so I work on getting those moved down the line line. Since the bulb did pop off am I in any danger of having infection, pain, gas build up or even a blood clot back inside my belly? I’ve always been told not to put air inside your body because it could lead to heart problems. Just trying to be extra cautious that’s why I’m asking. Lol oh I am 9 days post op
