It's not warm. But my pain has increased!! It feels more like heart burn stuck behind my chest. I just took Tylenol, Keflex and a Valium. Hope I Can sleep.

That does look worrisome. Please call your PS and let us know what he says. I hope you were able to get some rest and that you just need some antibiotics to clear it up.

I don't know if you're standing at an angle, but your left side (our right) looks quite swollen too. As someone who has had an infection I would strongly suggest seeing your PS.

I agree with the other ladies, I don't like the look of that redness. On the left (in the photo) it's a little pink but they will be somewhat irritated. The right side on the screen though, it just looks way too red to me, red enough that you should see your PS ASAP I think.

Also it looks like you have a towel on. Is it that red always or just when you get out of a warm/hot shower? I know on myself being fair skinned with a cool skin tone I often see MUCH redder areas after a warm shower on my eczema, any wounds, etc. but after a little while it goes back to normal-ish. Make sure you keep taking photos throughout the night in the same light.

Either way, I think you should see the PS, if there is no infection that's awesome but if there is you need to be 100% on top of it.

It was that red all the time . I'm going in tomorrow AM. I emailed pics of the red areas to the PS nurse. I'm waiting to hear back.
My left boob definitely looks floppier to me. It was the one that had the deflated implant for 3 weeks so it sagged (and it was always a little lower). I'm praying the even up a little

I think they look great in shape! Don't worry though it's so early out, I think anything like that will even right out with time. You just have to make sure that you get the infection under control! If that's what it is, hopefully not.

Just got home from PS. Thank God it's not infected. He removed a couple of the steri strips thinking that may be causing irritation. I go back Thursday to remove sutures.

That is great news! I was starting to notice an area similar to the pick you posted and thought it may be irritation as well.
