My healing after a third breast reduction surgery is more painful than my first two surgeries - why is this?


I am 58 years old and had a third breast reduction five weeks ago.  I am still having a lot of pain and my breasts feel really tight.  When I first wake up in the morning, they are a little better but worse as the day goes on.  How long do you think this pain will go on for?  I had no pain after my first two breast reduction surgeries.


Please address your concerns with your breast surgeon expediently. Worsening pain after surgery can be an early sign of infection.
