I had surgery the 8th of august 2013, and lately after my 2nd week checkup I've felt some intense burning pain in my right breast. Its only lasting for about 1-3min, with a break on about 30min-2hours. My right areola is also darker than my lefty. Can this have something to do with the fact that I'm sleeping on my side? Is it a infection? What can I do to heal the best that I can? I'm only 20y old, got my surgery covered. Thanks

Breast pain after augmentation
Thank you for asking about the breast pain after your breast lift and augmentation.
- Unless you have fever, swelling and redness, your pain is most likely nerve pain from a nerve that was bruised during surgery and is working again.
- Sleeping right side down can irritate a nerve and cause this pain. .
- It usually subsides within a week. Let your surgeon know. He may want to check you. Best wishes.
