You should: Breast implants should not hinder your ability to move your arm. It may not feel that way the day after surgery, but after a few weeks to months the range should be completely normal. If you are having trouble, be certain to contact your plastic surgeon for an evaluation.

Constantly having back pain, could it be my breast size 38d, would yoga help? I'm 28 years old, 145 pounds.

Constantly having back pain, could it be my breast size 38d, would yoga help? I'm 28 years old, 145 pounds.

Possibly: Large breasts can contribute to back pain since they make bad posture worse. Yoga can be very helpful in strengthening the muscles that support your back. I would recommend the downward dog pose especially because it involves your whole body in lengthening and strengthening.

Lower left back pain x6mos. Better when standing or walk. Now slight discomfort on left rib area under breast. The rib started last night dinner?

Uncertain: These two may not be related. Sometimes inflammatory back pain is made better when walking. The pain of the left rib could be anything from muscle on the outside too lung tissue to internal body issues on the inside. I can't put the two together and I would recommend you discuss this with your physician

I have been having pain on the side and bottom of my breast. I can't tell if it's physically the breast or bellow. Also, I'm having upper back pain.

I have been having pain on the side and bottom of my breast. I can't tell if it's physically the breast or bellow. Also, I'm having upper back pain.

Which breast or is it: Is this one breast or two or on both sides or one side. I assume one breast and the symptoms could be from the bread, muscles of the chest wall or come from the ribs underneath Then or from some problem inside the chest. The evaluation by a physician should help clarify which of these possibilities is probable cause of your discomfort

I am 28f. I am getting upper back pain in nights by morning it is reducing. Mainly between down shoulders. For two days it passed to front and breast?

Ans: Well many possibilities here. If you are a female and gave large breast this can cause upper back pain. Poor posture can cause the same issue carrying heavy objects like if you are a student with backpack can cause upper back issues. Work on proper posture. See if this helps if not see your doctor for evaluation
