Still Have Pain After Lipomas Removed a Month Ago

I had three non encapsulated lipomas removed from rear of left leg, just above knee joint. Doc said exercise was fine after a week and I waited three. I still have pain, even to the touch, is this normal?

Lingering pain is not unusual, and in the absence of signs of infection is not worrisome.  Continue follow up visits, and be patient.
