Unilateral pain following breast augmentation
Pain is normal after a significant trauma like breast augmentation surgery, even asymmetric pain, and you are still early in the recovery process. Given time, perhaps another week or two, this pain should resolve. I have to believe that your surgeon prescribed something for post-operative pain relief. Was this not the case? Some surgeons take pride in falsely advertising that they perform painless breast augmentation surgery, and to prove the point, purposefully neglect to provide post-op pain medication. Their patients all too often end up in the ER late at night seeking relief because no surgeon will give them a prescription without an exam.
Please return to your surgeon for a follow-up visit to confirm there is not something more serious or an unusual cause for your pain. He should be able to prescribe something to assist in your recovery until the pain subsides. Best wishes.
