Post surgery problems

My OH had surgery 3 weeks ago to remove a lump in her left breast. Thankfully it was 'only' a fibroadenoma. However, she is still in a lot of general pain/discomfort and whilst her aftercare nurse has assured her that this is perfectly normal and could last for some months, could someone give us some further reassurance that this is the case.

 

In addition she is still experiences numbness/pins and needles in her toes which again we've been told is not unexpected.

 

Thanks
