Hi
The post operative bleeding time is not constant and it depends upon various factors.
As your drain is removed,nothing to worry.
They might have judged that nothing is coming through the drain,so they removed it.
Minimal amount of fluid will come through the drain.It is abdominal fluid.If the drain is getting frank blood,then it should be taken into consideration.
So,nothing to worry.
Wish you good health
Regards
