Pain After Surgery Requires Evaluation
Thank you for your question.
Pain two years after breast reconstruction where implants were used is most commonly capsular contracture which is scar tissue that can form around the implants. More unusual sources of pain could also include nerve damage which may be permanent. Even more unlikely diagnoses could include recurrent cancer (again, very unlikely). In any case any of these possible issues should be evaluated by your treating surgeon to see if improvements can be made.
I hope this helps.

Pain after mastectomy
If yoga re having paining in your reconstructed breast, it is certainly a good idea to have it evaluated. Good luck.
Severe pain 2 years after mastectomy and reconstruction
It is impossible to tell what may be causing your pain. But you need to seek medical attention to get this pain worked up. Please see your internist/PCP for an evaluation. In addition, given your history of breast cancer, please start with a visit with your breast oncologist.
