It is common to get a variety of aches and pains and zings and pullings and pushings and funny feelings and numbness and itching that you can't scratch for at least six months after surgery. These unusual feelings are response of the body stretching over time to accommodate new implant.
While you're description sounds quite normal, the safest thing to do would be to just check in with your plastic surgeon.
Best wishes on a full and complete recovery.
