Nope, you are not being paranoid......complication of surgery....haematoma....bag of blood under the skin.

It should burst, but I would have that that you need to go back to the hospital A&E as it may need draining.

Nothing to worry about.
I don't think you have anything to worry about stevecain. I also had an arthroscopy of my knee back in June. When I got my dressing removed, I developed small bags of blood (blood blisters) under my skin. The hospital told me that it was normal. After about 2wks, they just dried up and peeled off. It has left scars for me though.

I hope this helped
