Question: I had a breast lift and augmentation ten days ago, and I am experiencing some pain in my right breast, near my armpit. The best way to describe it is a non-constant pressure that comes and goes; almost like a squeezing sensation. Is this because I am right handed, and am probably doing more with this side of my body? Also, both are still quite swollen and irritated underneath the breasts themselves. Is all of this normal?
Answer: Discomfort is normal to a certain degree, and all of yours sounds very standard. You would definitely know if you were suffering from an infection, tissue necrosis or were in danger of losing a nipple. What you are describing, however, is completely normal, but all great questions.
