You asked about itching - where is the itching?

Reply to Family Physician's Post: i itch all over

the drainage is coming from the breast incision --- he did not put in a drain which i understand
however the breast fills w blood, drains alot and then fills again and drains again --- this does not seem normal

NO - it is NOT normal to have drainage from an incision 3 weeks after a surgical procedure. This suggest poor wound healing, possible from an infection.

I would see your physician ASAP - and if you are not satisfied with the answers you get, I would suggest getting a second opinion.
