thank You for all the info.. I had my bi-lateral 8/15/2012...on oct 11-2012 I had expanders put in.. they are tight and sore.. and the Right one is bigger and more to my right arm... preventing me from lifting well..reading all these comments  help me to know I am not alone and alot of this is to be expected....I had 250 cc during surgery and only 50 last week. I go back in wed..I know I can't wait until the ";switch -out"..my surgeon said they have to sit for 8 weeks to maintain the stretching of the chest muscle and skin..ouch!!!  I think the muscle relaxers help a little. but dang this hurts and feels like it is moving...
