Painful Discomfort Under Armpit Next to Breast Implant

I underwent transax subpectoral breast...

I underwent transax subpectoral breast augmentation August 28, 2009. I have been a in a lot of pain, i am 5'2", 105 lbs, with little breast tissue. I had Gel 250cc left & 275cc right.

My MAIN concern is i can't lift my right arm without feeling a sharp shooting needle-stabbing type of pain right beneith my armpit on side of my rib cage, next to where the implant rests at the bottom. As i move the implant away from it (just a few mm away), i can lift my arm and even feel something stretching, as soon as i release the implant it lays on top of whatever it is and causes the pain.

My left arm is perfectly fine and i can move it with reasonable pain/discomfort, but is it possible this may not go way/wrong placement/revision or other?

Is a sharp shooting needle-stabbing pain beneith the armpit on the side of the implant normal?

I have been in discomfort and in a lot of pain!

I noticed you said you are up 2 cup sizes. Was this from fenugreek? What is it, where do you get it and is it costly? Thanks so much for the info!

I am 7 1/2 months post op with the same issue. From the beginning my left brest was much higher and very severe pain. Ii am also told that is is on a nerve and it willtake time. I also get tingling down my arm and still cant sleep on my stomach without discomfort. My left arm also goes totally numb in the middle of the night.

I had very sharp shooting pain in one breast after augmentation. In my case it was under the nipple. It lasted at least 8 weeks and I was convinced there was a problem. But then it just went away...I don't even remember the pain going away. It's just not there anymore. So I think sometimes the 2 sides just heal differently...

Thanks for your reply. I wAs told it was a nerve he implant was touching and that it needed some time, I'm just wondering time for what? Is it going to stretch out?? Not to mention I feel like air bubbles inside too.
