Post recon pain

Hi, had surgery 9 days ago. Single mastectomy with direct to implant, nipple sparing reconstruction, and targetted lymphnode removal.

For the first week, pain was very manageable and really only felt in the armpit area, whilst reconstructed breast felt completely numb.

In the last couple of days however, I’ve started to experience a dull pain in the centre of the new breast, close to the nipple. Its nowhere near unbearable, but it is constant.

Is this normal? Just a bit unnerved by it as had complete numbness for the first week!
