Compare Recovery of Breast reduction with PBM

Hi, I had a breast reduction two weeks ago and found it very uncomfortable initially. I am still quite sore but my surgeon said everything is healing well and I still have swelling under the incision lines below my breasts which is to be expected. I am curious if anyone has had both surgeries and how much more painful was the mastectomy with reconstruction vs the breast reduction? I have decided to go through with the Diep so I am trying to prepare myself for what to expect in terms pain level , recovery, etc.
