Unusual to have rib pain and morning issues with above the muscle placement. Maybe a more detailed IN PERSON examination by your doc is needed.

Every doc has a different protocol. I would recommend following the advice you have been given. Luckily you will start to feel better soon as the main discomfort from augmentation is usually resolved by the 2 week mark.

Ice and BA

I generally don't recommend ice for breast patients as the implant is so far from the skin surface it does little good nor is it helpful after the point of maximum swelling, after the first 3 days.

Discuss this with your surgeon and follow his directions!
