In brief: Pain after surgery

You r expected to have some pain, often worse 2-3 days following the procedure because of inflammation of the traumatized tissues.
If if the pain is too severe, you should contact your surgeon for instruction...Possible increase of pain meds or re-eval for possible infection etc...I wish you well on your course to recovery! good luck..

In brief: Not normal

Acute pain, post-surgery is not normal.
Contact your doctor. "high risk" breast cancer is no reason for acute pain.
