I am sorry to hear about your pain. It sounds unusual but it also appears that your surgeon is trying to localize the source. This can take time.

Pain in breasts

It is difficult to say without formally examining you. This certainly is not the norm.  If all else is normal, you may want to see a pain doctor. Sometimes patients develop unusual sensory maladies after surgery that the pain docs can treat.
