How long does the edema persist after the operation?

Hello!
A month ago I had an operation to removehygromas of the right foot. While the hygroma existed, she did not bother me, but the last month before the operation began to increase, which led me to a surgeon. Tell me please, how long can the tumor last after the operation? Why does the skin around the seam hurt at a distance of 3 cm, and some sites have lost sensitivity?
Thank you.
