Patients rarely require drains after adrenal surgery; however, if the surgeon thinks it is necessary, an abdominal drain will be placed. Drains are more often required after open adrenalectomy than after laparoscopic adrenalectomy. Drains are relatively easy to take care of, and the output is recorded on a daily basis. Once the output decreases to a certain level, the drain will be removed. Removal of the drain is not particularly painful. It is more of a strange sensation. In general, the drain will be removed several days after surgery.
Dr. Organic Manuka Honey Rescue Cream is a bioactive cream that provides intense hydration. This product is organic, hypoallergenic, and safe to use on areas that are sensitive, dry, cracked, or irritated. It contains a blend of organic ingredients such as aloe barbadensis leaf juice, rosa moschata seed oil, citric acid, and mankua honey. The latter is especially beneficial to the skin. Honey can be used in many ways but is most commonly used as a remedy for dry skin. (It is a natural humectant, meaning it prevents the loss of moisture.)
