7 days post-op, 425cc silicone implant. Unbearable muscle and nerve pain since reaching to catch my daughter from a fall.

You might want to see your plastic surgeon.
Some nerve and muscle pain, burning or tingling sensations, or shooting pains are normal after breast augmentation but the pain typically isn’t unbearable. Since you were recovering well before catching your daughter, you may want to see your plastic surgeon to ensure that everything is OK and your body continues to heal. You should be careful to avoid heavy lifting, strenuous physical activities, raising your arms, pushing or pulling anything. Your body needs a period of rest and relaxation to get through the initial recovery phase.
Post Op Recovery Concern
Thank you for your question. If your pain became severe after catching your daughter it is possible you did some minor damage. I recommend that you contact your Plastic Surgeon so that you can be assessed. If everything looks and feels the same you don't likely have anything to worry about.
All the best

Thank you for your question. If you haven't done so, I would recommend you contact / see your plastic surgeon for an in person evaluation. Your pain is likely associated with you catching your daughter and should be evaluated by your surgeon. Best of luck with your recovery!

I appreciate your question.
Since there has been a change in your post op course, please contact your surgeon so he/she can examine you and recommend the most appropriate treatment plan at this time.
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative breast surgery.
Best of luck!

It's best to catch any issues tht may have occurred as early as possible so to not cause any additional harm. Good luck!
