I also had a breast reduction on my left breast three weeks ago following removal of a 3cm tumour. I have to say the first few days it was very uncomfortable even with pain relief, although after a week I no longer needed to take painkillers. It might help to speak to your BCN if the medication is not helping. Unfortunately I was unlucky and I now have have a mx because of unclear margins. I am now waiting for an appointment with the plastic surgeon. Hope all goes well for you, there are other ladies on this forum who have had the same procedure as us, whose surgery was sucessful and they needed no other surgery.x
