I had tradtional lipo on my flank, abs, and love handles 10 days ago; the drain was removed 3 days ago because it was extremely painful. Now it appears where the drain began and ended there are pockets of fluid forming. On the right it's one pocket the size of a silver dollar and on the left it appears there are three lines forming. I'm really nervous about this because it is becoming increasingly painful. Will this go away on it's own and appear normal? Or have to be removed with a needle?

Fluid after liposuction
There is definite swelling after liposuction. It is unusual to use a drain for standard lipo. AS for fluid after the drain removal you will need to see your doctor for this.
