I know it is normal to have some pain after breast reduction surgery and I shouldn't be surprised it hurts to cough or sneeze. How much pain is a sign of something else?

Breast reduction and pain
It is very hard to tell patients when the pain is a problem and could be something more serious. One potential pain issue is when there is significant differences between the two breasts and the same breast appears to be much larger than the other one. This can suggest a hematoma. The best thing to do is to follow closely with yoru surgeon.

Thank you for your question. Yes, after any surgery you will experience some pain. It's difficult to know if it's "normal" without examining you. I would suggest that if you have concerns, to go in and see your surgeon to make sure that all is well. Best Wishes!
