I had a lump in right breast and got it removed about 3 months ago maybe longer. Is it supposed to be bruised and hurting still?

Lumpectomy or mastectomy
After either a lumpectomy or mastectomy there is associated bruising. The pocket left after lumpectomy fills with fluid. The mastectomy defect is reconstructed with your own tissue or implant(s). If it were not reconstructed a drain would be necessary to drain the fluid that would build up in the pocket.
