Not related: The pain you describe would not be related to the procedure 18 months ago. What you describe may be breast pain due to fibrocystic breast disease (FCBD). That pain should improve with vitamin E. Vitamin E when taken for breast pain due to FCBD usually responds to doses of 800 to 1000 IU (international units) taken each day. Good luck.
