My temp, blodd pressure and pulse are all good so I am not dying! But knowing that others felt this type of pain makes me feel a bit better.
Yeah, some say the 3rd day is the worst. For me, the 4th-6th day was the worst and then it started looking up from there. I was in a bit of discomfort. If you start noticing any redness, pus, fever, swelling I would notify the PS. Also, just in case, if you have any difficulty breathing (other than feeling like you have 20lb weights on each breast) go to the ER (pain the chest + trouble breathing=could be serious..blood clot, etc) HTH and GL with the rest of your (hopefully) great recovery!
