I had arm pains for a while and ROM issues. I had a lot of post op pain/discomfort (also had 2 surgeries back to back which I think had a lot to do with everything). It was a couple months before seeing a PT. I wish I had gone sooner, it’s made the biggest difference. I work with a PT who specializes in BC patients and ROM is almost fully restored and she works with releasing scar tissue as well.
I wasn’t the greatest with doing my exercises but again that’s because I was in so much discomfort. So follow your exercise recommendations. And if you are having any issues don’t hesitate to go for PT.
Other than having an additional unexpected surgery and being in so much discomfort due to the expanders almost the entire time I had them I have to say I still feel lucky that I had no other complications/infections etc.
So I hope your surgery goes well and you won’t be in too much pain. The first few weeks/months can be rough (emotional roller coaster) but just know you’ll be fine and get through it. Best of luck to you :)
