My 8 year old daughter had VUR surgery 2 months ago. During the surgery they placed a drain into her abdomen, through her bladder and up her left ureter to keep it from swelling shut because the diameter of the ureter was so small. When we were discharged from the hospital the drain was still in and they told us the sutures should dissolve and the drain should fall out in 2-4 weeks. Well, now it's been 8 weeks and the drain is still in, they keep telling us the stitches still need to soften and dissolve...anyone else had this happen? They told us that if it doesn't come out, they will have to take her back into surgery to remove it, they just keep pushing the date farther and farther back!!! So frustrated!
