Oct 18/10 I had a L limplant put in due to a previous mastectomy. The R side was a breast lift. I have been having sharp pains in the R side the last couple of days. Not sure if I caught a bug, but have had achiness, hot and cold feelings. Could an infection be present somewhere inside the breast. The scars are a bit red, but I think that's normal for 2 mths post op. There isn't any yellowish discharge, but a little tiny section had opened up and I used polysporin and covered it. It since closed

Sharp Pains after Breast Reconstrive Surgery with Implant
It is very difficult to answer your question without an examination.
Sharp pains can be due to nerve regeneration after surgery. Many of the nerves get cut or stretched and the healing process may cause these pains.
However, if you have redness around the incision, only your surgeon can determine if this is normal redness or abnormal redness due to infection.
Please have your surgeon evaluate you if there are any concerns.

In many instances sharp pains can be an indication of a normal return to sensation. In other instances it could be indicative of a problem. Meet with your plastic surgeon to conduct an examination.
