Breast Implant Malposition or Nerve Pain?

A photo would help if malposition is possible. However that in itself is not a likely cause for the pain you are experiencing. There is not enough info here to deal with the questions. Time course is not stated, how long and what dose of gabapentin, etc. Please repost with more info, though I must say that the internet is not a likely source of a solution to this problem. All the best.
