    Procedure or Surgery (Mastectomy): 2 days post surgery experienced severe pain, prescribed Tramadol. For 3 weeks continued to take Tramadol for the pain developed an addiction to Tramadol. Drain remained in place for four weeks, and developed sores under dressing as they weren't changed for 3/52 post operative care unsatisfactory. I had a hematoma a side effect from the surgery, which became infected.
