Breast reduction. Two weeks after, I had a hematoma, drained, stitched, still hurts a lot. Is this normal?

It can take some time for the pain and discomfort to settle. I would keep in touch with your PS as the wounds are healing. Having a haematoma should not affect the long term results.
Post breast reduction haematoma
Haematomas are a recognised complication. If dealt with quickly then they tend not to have long term issues.
Treating open wounds may need a bit more attention to enable good healing, but regular contact with your surgeon should enable this
