Nerve Pain After Breast Augmentation
It is possible: One of the potential risks of breast augmentation surgery is decrease or loss of nipple sensation. The published risk is about 10%.

Lymphedema: An essential part of breast cancer staging is the removal of some of the lymph nodes under the armpit. The lymphatic system's job includes draining tissue fluid and bringing it back into the circulation. Lymph node removal short-circuits this process leading to the risk of chronic swelling, or lymphedema. The less nodes removed, the lower the risk. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Yes but be careful: When used for breast reconstruction, breast implants are placed under the "pec" muscle. As you work your chest, your pec muscles compress and push the implants out to the side. Light chest work outs shouldn't make a difference longterm. More aggressive chest work outs can widen the implant pocket over time which can lead to the implants being displaced sideways, especially when you're laying down. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

5months post op from breast implants silicone under the muscle and have stinging pain in right breast. Is this normal? Could it it have ruptured?
Nipple feeling: Due to the invasiveness of breast reconstruction, the breasts will become numb after the surgery. However, the sensations in the area will return in time since nerves have the potential to regrow. Should any sensation return, this could take up to a year or two before the feeling completely returns.

Can my neck/arm pain be a result of bankart repair shoulder surgery 2yrs ago? nerve pain from neck down left arm, started 6 months after surgery
Probably not: If you had a bankart repair and did well for 6 months and started having neck pain running down your left arm, it is more likely coming from a "pinched nerve" in your neck. Bankart repairs are done primarily for instability, so if you have not developed recurrent instability, it is probably not your shoulder, also shoulder problems do not typically cause pain running down the arm. Be seen! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
