I had my plastic surgery on Wednesday. I have two drains in. The one on my left hip has a tiny amount of dried blood on the gauze. Is that something normal? I hate having anxiety as it makes me nervous about every little thing.

I came home with a drain with my RNY.  A little bit of dried blood on your dressing is nothing to worry about - it's probably from the small incision they made when inserting the tube.

If you are concerned, give your surgeon's office a call.
