It has been six weeks since my breast reductions surgery and my breast are still very tender and sore.  Some days are better than others but I am still experiencing some pain and discomfort.  From the outside appearance they look wonderful.  Is this normal to still be experiencing discomfort?

I am just 2 weeks out and still havent slept very well. Back at work on Monday so hopefully being busy will mean I am more tired. I have to wear the Zbra during the day and from today can do without it at night. Though I may try a soft bra just to hold things together! The shooting pains Nice to know that even through 6 weeks I will still have discomfort, better to know than to not know! Does anyone know how long the shooting pains and bruising takes to subside? H

Mine lasted for about 3 months.  Nothing terrible but sore in spots.

Yes...but it should get better each week. I'm seven weeks out and I still feel some tenderness and discomfort if I roll over onto my stomach while sleeping. The internal stiches take several months to heal...I was told to wait 3 months to wear a wire bra.
