Normal? I can feel my implant...

...under my right arm, I can actually feel the implant and move it when I push it. Is this normal? I think my rightie is more swollen than the left. It also hasn't dropped as much. I'm hoping it's just swelling and not the implant slipping out of place. Is that even possible? I had my surgery 3 1/2 days ago. I am right handed, and I'm definitely using that hand/arm more. When I move my arm in certain positions, I can also feel the implant moving around towards the bottom of my breast. Is that normal? Is it just settling into the pocket, or is something wrong? Both sides look normal, just swollen and tight. Thanks, and sorry for the rambling post. Just worried, and I don't have a post-op until Thursday (4 more days).

I was able to feel my implant on my left side before my re-do(to go bigger). Doc said it was normal. I haven't really checked them out fully yet since the re-do to tell if I can still feel them.

Yep! That's normal!

Don't worry about your breast implants moving around - they will do that! I can feel my implants under my arms too! What you have to look for is severe pain, or the implant actually pushing down past the breast pocket (lower).

Thank you so much. I am really worrying myself over this. I guess if they both felt the same, I'd just assume it's normal, but my left feels fine. My right feels like a fatigued muscle and I can just feel the implant moving around a lot. It seems to slip under my arm a bit (not noticeable by looking really, but can definitely feel it.) and I can feel it when I put my arms down. On the left I don't have the "hang over." I do feel that kind of hot "burny" pain at times when it moves around on the right side. It doesn't really hurt, but it feels strange. The right side is also higher and more swollen. I guess rightie is MY late bloomer. I hope that's all it is. Thanks for the reassurance. I need to get out of this house!! Boobs are all I think about!
