So I'm about 6 hours post op for lollipop mastopexy breast lift. I feel good no intense pain. Haven't even touched pain meds yet. BUT, I am super sore in my right armPit and upper right pec. Sometimes there is a shooting pain going across my upper pec. I looked in the mirror with my surgical bra on and nothing seems to be swollen. Is this normal? It hurts even on top of my shoulder neck and into my back. I went on a crazy power painting spree for about a week before my surgery could that be it? It feels like a pinched nerve right on my pec armpit then  like I really worked out my arm hard.

Totally normal. I am three weeks post op and still have pain. PS said it's comletely normal and will go away with time. If you are really concerned, see your PS. You paid for him/her, so don't be afraid to call! :)

I'm sorry you were going through this right after your breast lift. Wondering if you asked your surgeon about it. Were you sore before surgery?

You had just had major surgery, so it might have been caused by that. Hoping it's subsided now.

Here's some information about post-op breast pain. Hope it helps.
