Breast Are Swollen Again After Reconstructive Surgery?
4.5 weeks after having reconstructive breast implant surgery, my breasts are healing fine; the swelling went down and had a good progress report from my PS. Feeling healed & normal, I decided to eat a chocolate candy bar. Ate one 2 days ago, my breast swelled up awful again and it's such an uncomfortable feeling. The swelling is under my breast, under my armpits and towards my back. Why did this happen? Or is this an allergy?

I have seen hematomas (bleeding into the space)
