Amanda, there are lots of good suggestions here. A friend of mine loaned me a lab coat that had been modified with two interior pockets to hold the drains. It was a lifesaver - I wore it everywhere I went. The coat was loaned from her church. After it is worn and returned to the church, the name of the patient and year are embroidered inside. An ongoing reminder of those who have fought this battle. A lanyard is great for the shower. You can easily clip the drains and they will stay secure while you shower. Good luck. Prayers for you.
