I had drain after my Lumpectomy AND my Mx as well, it was easier taking it out the second time as I knew what to expect. Just a weird sensation but not especially sore really. Hope this helps.

After lumpectomy I didn't have a drain, which I think is normal but not certain. I now have to have a mastectomy which will involve a drain and, like you, find the thought scary. I am taking comfort from the posts that I have read where drains, if mentioned at all, seem to not be a big problem. Xx
No, doesn't hurt when drains are removed, as long as you relax, and the way to do this is,is breath and in and then breath out slowly. You are having lots of problems, take care.
