      Get expanded less often, every other week instead f every week. Helped me a lot (make sure it works out financially, I had extra co pays because fthat shedule).

      I too find the expanders very uncomfortable. I still have one 4 months after the left mastectomy. I find it difficult to sleep because the expander jabs me in the side or bottom of the breast. I was advised to take Tylenol for the discomfort. I am hoping for the best after the exchange.
      They do get less painful with time...hang in there.

      I had a mast 3 weeks ago. All has been pretty good until my first fill. I had the fill 2 days ago with no pain at all, but today I sneezed twice. Since the sneezes I have been in breath taking excruciating pain. Called my PS. He didn’t seem concerned but told me to take a Valium and Percocet. Has anyone else had pain from sneezing?
