Are drain tubes necessary after a hysterectomy is done?

Patient: Are drain tubes necessary after a hysterectomy is done?

 

 

Doctor: Thank you for writing to us.Yes, you will need tubes after a hysterectomy to help you not collect blood in the area of the removed uterus. This will prevent you from having a long-term infection.There is nothing to worry about if you get an infection, please see a Doctor if you get redness or pain.
