Why does my left breast hurt at times when laying down?

Thank you for your question.  This early in recovery it is very common to have discomfort which can increase when lying down.  If the left breasts is very swollen, feels so tight that it could burst and you're having extreme pain you should see her plastic surgeon for an examination to rule out bleeding.  However if the breast feels normal sitting up I doubt that this is happened. Always check with your plastic surgeon and do not follow Internet advice.
