My mother S/P TAH with BSO with 2 Jackson-Pratt drainage was about to D/C home today. The GYN Surgeon successful took out 1 Jackson Pratt, but when he d/c'd the second one not all the tube came out. The Surgeon was very surprise, he went on saying all his 20 plus years experience this never happen to him. So, about 4 inches of the tube is still inside my mother (she said about4-6 inches).She was going to OR to take out the rest of the tube today but the anestisialogist (spell check
) had other cases already scheduled. So my mother just called and told me the GYN Surgeon and the OB/GYN tried again to take it out at bedside with the help of an ultrasound machine to guide them and Ativan and Narcotic to calm her of course. Again no success. So in AM she's going to OR to take it out. What do you guys think happen? I asked my fellow nurse colleague with over 20 years experience (Med/Surg) if she ever experience this or heard of it she says "No d/c'ing a Jackson-Pratt was always successful".The Surgeon added that it could be a manufacturer defect,this was the first time he ever used a different manufacturer.
