Help JP Drain or not????

  1. Yeasterday at 1 pm I had a panniculectomy and hernia repair. I have 2 drains that the nurses were calling jp drains but they have hard tubes, can't be stripped or milked, just suction bulb. I just work up from a nap and the is a long stirngy blood worm in the bulb. I believe it was clotted blood in the tube that made it's way out in to the bulb, is this ok, normal?
