Recovery from Bilateral TE exchange for new TEs?

I had a bilateral skin sparing mastectomy Aug 2015. I started reconstruction with TE placement Feb 2016. Yesterday I went in for my exchange and came out with larger TEs. From what I understand, the upper areas were fused together or something and would not allow for an adequate implant. I was not prepared even a hint that this might happen. What can I expect I terms of pain and recovery time compared to the first TE placement. I'm in a great deal of pain but not as much as the first time.
