You're right- they are frustrating - but they are temporary, so power through- once they are out you are in for the best shower of your life!! I had an apron- styled like the type you buy at Lowe's (sometimes called a carpenter's apron, or nail apron) just plop the drains in the pocket and go on with your life- wearing comfy, cozy, oversize zip front hoodies!! You got this!! Hugs!!

Thank goodness they are only temporary and will be taken out as soon as your drainage goes down. Keep pushing forward!!!

Drain tubes!! Uhggg! My best advice is get some surgical tape so you can tape /secure them to yourself and be very careful with hygiene when touching the tube and yourself! You do not want to deal with infection! You got this girl!!
