Seroma discomfort

I had my mx and 2 lymph nodes removed on the 24th Jan and niw have a seroma. Im feeling very uncomfotable particularly under my arm where I have a a golf ball size lump. I had it drained 3 days ago and it has just filled up again. What can I do for relief I’ve been taking paracetamol but would welcome any other tips.
