Sorry to hear about all your problems, sounds very rough lately.
The pros of draining the hematoma are that if it is significant enough and causing you a lot of pain it would definitely help relieve those symptoms and speed you the healing process.
The cons are as with any procedure: risk of bleeding, scarring, infection and that it may recur again and you would be back at square one.
So the question is individual and personal to you: would the benefit of the procedure outweigh the risk?
