Anyone else find their expanders painful?

I had bilateral risk reducing mastectomy due to BRAC1 gene 8 weeks ago. Scar on my left side opened up and I had to go back into theatre to have my implant removed washed out and reinserted, 2 weeks later the right did exactly the same so my consultant advised removal and expanders to gently stretch my skin which seems the safer option. I had my surgery 4 days ago now and the pain is a lot different this time. I only had brief pain with my first few surgeries, this has to be the most painful.
