Still Dripping

Last Tuesday Dr. Movassaghi refused to remove the drain tube. I am still on antibiotics, still dripping. Friday is my next checkup. May be I should bring flowers and chocolates and bribe everybody...
I'm really annoyed by this tube and ball hanging from my side. The seroma liquid, that used to be very clear now has become cloudy with white specs. I am not sure if this is good or bad. I have to use syringe daily to pull the stuff out from the valve - otherwise it get plugged. That little maneuver keep the juice flowing, But why it is not healing?
I wear an elastic binder with extra foam to put pressure in my waist. I wear it 23 hours per day, just taking short breaks. It is annoying. Still have problem with sleeping. The doctor prescribed Ambien, and yesterday one pill made wonders - I slept all night. Today another single pill only lasted less than 2 hours, and I am wide awaken again.
I have too much work to do to feel so tired. I am not a happy camper now...
