Armpit pain

Hello, I really appreciate that there are doctors on here to answer my possibly mundane question! I had my breast augmentation on Monday, so I am 6 days post-op. I started out as a 34AA or a 32A, depending on the bra. My doctor and I decided on Mentor Silicone Gel, 400cc's, moderate plus, over the muscle. I think I got it all The question I have for you is about armpit pain. I am ambidextrous, therefore I use my right hand for writing and I use my left hand for basically everything else; cutting, chopping food in the kitchen, and especially painting art. I am also a restaurant server, and I use my left arm for carrying the sometimes heavy trays. Since surgery, my left armpit has been causing most of my pain! Yes, my breasts are sore and quite full feeling, but it's not so much pain as discomfort. But my left armpit is a sharp pain. I do wake up in the night on my right side, even though I do my best to stay on my back. Any ideas?
