BR date was June '12, and after healing I continue to have pain in left breast. I also have been suffering what seems to be severe anxiety attacks that only started since the surgery. I was put on antibiotics for any infection but it didn't change anything. I do have extremely large scars on the left and I am extremely fatigue all the time. Is continuing pain normal? I did go from a H to a DDD. I've been told that anxiety is very possible after a large and stressful surgery.

Breast Pain after Breast Reduction
Breast pain after breast reduction after many months may be due to a recovering nerve or muscle or fascia healing or any number of things. A physical exam can usually sort some of these items out.

Concerns after Breast Reduction?
Always best to check with your own plastic surgeon about concerns after surgery. Online consultants will not be able to provide you with meaningful diagnosis, treatment recommendations, or reassurance.
Best wishes; hopefully, you will be very pleased with the long-term outcome of the breast reduction procedure.
