    hello islang beauty, my 1st time to get into this web for infos. i am 61 years old had mastectomy of right breast for DCIS stage 0. undergoing reconsructions right now. on 3rd fill of expander last week, i have severe pain inside like a knife is cutting the inside but hard to pinpoint where it is. i can not lay on my back, i have to find position to sleep on. hard to breath when i am straight but able to breath when i put my shoulder forward. i have sharp pain on rt breast when i inhale this is now ongoing for 7 days advil helps for 3 to 4 hours but back to aches again afterwards. my hubby thinks i complain too much. last night i went for chest xray and it was normal. i awaken this am still having same discomfort, pain inside the expander on movement and on inhalation. did u ever feel symptoms like these during your reconstruction? need to hear your experience. my surgeon is not much of a support. thank you in advanced.
