I was wondering if anyone has experienced nerve pain in reconstructed breasts, years after DIEP surgery in Nola? In the past few weeks I have had pain in one or both breasts that is a burning type pain. If I didn’t know any better, I would think I have shingles, but there is nothing there. No lumps, no rash, nothing. Just a burning pain. I plan on calling The Center for Restorative Breast Surgery on Monday to see if I can speak with a PA there. In the meantime I was wondering if anyone else has experienced the same thing.

I’m having an issue with one of my implants as well. It’s in breast that I had a prophylactic mastectomy.My PS suggested it was nerve pain and suggested getting more supportive bras. I have an appointment next week at Nordstrom since my local bra boutiques don’t carry much variety. Have you found a resolution?
