I had implants put in 2 years ago, under the muscle. just got them out. pain has been tolerable and going away slowly. but yesterday and today morning upon waking i raised my right arm up to yawn and stretch (which really woke me up) and it feels like i pulled something it hurt so bad. the pain subsided eventually yesterday, but it still hurts to do basic stuff (kinda like the day after surgery). did i do permanent damage to my muscle by doing that? (i will sleep with my arm in a sling tonight)

Damage to Muscle after Breast Implant Removal?
Thank you for the question.
It is extremely unlikely that any real harm has been done. I would suggest the use of anti-inflammatories ( if okayed by your surgeon) as well as a period of rest. Continue to follow-up with your plastic surgeon, who after direct examination, will be in the best position to advise and/or provide reassurance.
