Pain after lumpectomy

I am 9 days out of a lumpectomy and 2 nodes removed. I have terrible pain in my arm pit, burning, that I was told may be nerve damage. I also have shooting pain where the lumpectomy was in my breast. How long does this last? Nobody told me this! I thought this part was supposed to be simple! I also broke out in hives after the surgery from reaction to the antibiotic. I was put on 50 mg of Prednisone for 5 days. I have been off for 3 days now, but am an emotional mess, nauseous and fatigued! Depression has hit already! I thought this would be so simple! Can someone tell me how long the pain lasts and am I ever going to have any energy?
