Will I have a drain bag after surgery?
If you're getting the gastric sleeve, you'll typically wear a drain bag for 2 days. If you're having a Lap-Band removed and the gastric sleeve performed at the same time (Lap Band Revision To Gastric Sleeve), expect to also have an NG tube for about 1 day following surgery in most cases.
