    I would go to the Emergency room if the surgeon won't see you. Something is not right if the drain was in your tummy or intestine I could understand "gas" but it is in your boob. If it is gas then you may have a bowel obstruction which only an X-ray would tell. Please don't wait

    I agree, CALL. Though my skin was sensitive over the tubes, there was no noticeable swelling or "bubbles".
