I'm sorry to hear that you are in so much pain. Your Plastic Surgeon can assess you for problems and prescribe pain medication. I recommend that you give them a call.
All the best
Thank you for your question. In my opinion, #postoperative #pain that is #severe, or rated a 9 or 10 out of ten should be #evaluated by your #BCPS. Please give your PS a call. He needs to know what you are experiencing to make sure you are taken care of properly. Best wishes!
While pain after either breast biopsy or breast augmentation is quite common, if I hear that the pain is severe and out of proportion to what the average patient may experience, I would have the patient come in to have a look at. Call your operating plastic surgeon for advice. Good luck.
Thank you for your question.
While it is most likely just pain after the surgery and will most likely subside, the fact that you are having so much pain warrants a call to your surgeon to discuss the issue. They may want to examine you in person to make sure there isn't something going on. Best of luck!

Tough one. Not sure. About a week later, my guess is that area specifically might be inflammed as it is healing. The implant itself may be causing some discomfort in that specific location where the biopsy site was. When you get up, the implant moves out of that area so the pain goes away. A good exam by your surgeon might solve this mystery for you. Also, with a bit more healing and time, this will take care of itself. Let your surgeon know. Good luck. Hang in there.
