Had breast cyst aspirated today

Today I had a cyst in my left breast aspirated or extracted . It was 2.5 cm I believe in size. The doctor took out 5 cc of fluid. It was like half of a syringe. I had no idea that he was going to do it right then and there. I thought we were going to talk about it first. But there was the nurse with the needle and the next thing I know it's well underway and then it was over.

So my question is. Tonight it stings a little. I haven't taken all the bandaid. They didn't tell me how to take care of the area. Has anyone else had this done? Did you get a bruise or did it feel tender for awhile? I just don't know what to expect. I didn't even know it was going to be done in the office right on the spot. But I must say I am so glad it is over with. Thanks!
