Wudhu for one who has a JP drain inserted after an operation

Q: I had a surgical operation and have a JP Drain inserted. Its purpose is to drain fluids post the operation. My question is, can one make or retain wudhu whilst having the JP Drain?

A: If the liquid continuously comes out then you will be a ma`zoor. The law for a ma`zoor is that he will make one wudhu at the beginning of each namaaz time and thereafter if that particular breaker of wudhu occurs it will not affect his wudhu.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
