Pain in Left Armpit 9 Days Post Op - Calgary, AB

I recently just got 375cc cohesive silicone gel implants, areola incision, under the muscle last Monday. I had the priveledge of going to one of the top surgeons in my area. My recovery has been very smooth and I have had next to no pain, just typical tightness from skin stretching. I was instructed to wear my compression band for 7 days, however the left breast was still a bit higher and tighter (was smaller to begin with before surgery) so my nurse said it was okay to wear it for another day or so. Yesterday night when I layed down to go to sleep, I'm not sure if it was too tight, but I immediately took it off because I gained this almost unbearable pain in my armpit. It was really bad at first and I could hardly breath! I took some ibuprofen and Tylenol ( I didn't get any prescription pain medications post op, and didn't need any) and it was enough to help me sleep. When I woke up this morning I could hardly get out of bed because my shoulder, and armpit was so sore/stiff. Deep breathing hurt like a sharp stabbing pain. I did my regular stretching throughout the day as advised, and it has subsided. I did call my PS office and am still waiting on a call back. Now just touching around the sore area and what not its not my left breast that is sore per say, but is it possible I have a strained muscle/lymph note?? There is no change in the look/feel of my new breasts that I would consider out of the ordinary. Thank you

That sounds painful! I'm sorry you had to go through that. How is the pain now? What did your surgeon say?
