Roseanne, I had the same thing. It felt like I had stickers in my shirt that were rubbing me raw. My doctor said it was from the nerves 'learning' how to feel again. He said to try to massage the area as much as I could stand it to help teach the nerves. It is temporary and it will eventually get better and go away. I think mine lasted about 6 weeks, got gradually better and then went away completely. That was my fear too, that it wouldn't go away, but it eventually did. I just wanted someone to tell me that it was only temporary. And it is!
Good luck getting your drains out! You'll be more comfortable once they're gone. Hugs!
