6 months post op drain

I have been in hospital since 7 jan with an infection. My picc line was removed as it was thought that was the source. Now they are thinking it is my mastectomy scar so they are fitting a drain. Not had chance to ask any questions. Anyone with experience, is a local anaesthetic used? Any other tips appreciated.
