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.
