I had mine out yesterday 2/28/13 and feel pretty good myself. My pain also is mostly where the drains are. Not near as much pain as getting them in like you said. I don't even feel any pain in my breasts at all just the drain sites and that is more like a lot of stinging. I got in for my appt today at 11 and hopefully get them out. Hope you are continuing on a great recovery!!

I had mine out yesterday and have only had to take Tylenol. so much easier than having them put in. I have drains and so far that is where I'm sorest. I do feel a little beat up. I was under local or monitored anesthesia so the recovery has been easy.

Hi everyone, doing fine. No pain at all. I have not needed any pain meds at all. I am still wrapped so I have yet to see them. I felt really good when I got home but am feeling worse each day from taking antibiotics. They always make me really dizzy and sick so I will be happy when I am done with them....

Hope it all went well for you. I am just starting on this explanation journey since my left implant had had a failure. Best of luck and have a speedy recovery! Jean
