Does Anybody Ever Get Sharp Pains in the Nipple Area?

At about 4 weeks post op I was reaching behind the seat of my car and I felt a sharp pain in my right nipple. When I get cold my right nipple seems to "harden up" later than my left. It seems as if there is even a bit of numbness on the right side of that nipple. Today as I was swimming in the lake and I felt the same sharp pain sensation as I was reaching back. I am wondering if I will experience any more lack of nipple reaction to touch. Anyone experience the same thing or have any imput?

Hmm. Here's what some doctors have to say about nipple/breast pain after an augmentation. Not sure if that's exactly what you meant, though. You should consider asking your surgeon about this pain. You do look great!

Thank you Angie,
Thank you for your reply and compliment. :)
Besides the random and periodic pain spurts, I am beginning to get a little concerned about capsular contracture. My breasts are quite round and firm. I have been tracking my post op and recovery thoroughly. Maybe I am being overly concerned? I had surgery on 3-29-11. I am 5'4", 116lbs, with 400cc silicon gel put under the muscle. All has gone very well with the exception of the random pain.
Honestly, when I lay my arms over my breasts--as if reaching across my body--they feel like foreign objects. Is this normal?
