You are very welcome, I am glad we were able to help you. Re. the aches and pains, most of those things do improve over time......I always say "tincture of time" goes a long way towards improving flap reconstructions as they tend to get better in just about every way over a 12-18 month period following completion of the various procedures.
The discomfort on the left is likely one of a couple of things.....it may be capsular contracture around the implant, sticking it to surrounding scar tissue and causing the tightness. It could also be aggravated by nerve pains from the mastectomy out towards the armpit. If it comes and goes, there could be some spasm in the chest muscle (if the implant was put under the muscle).....in that case, a surgical transection of the nerve that fires the pectorals can help. It would also be important to have your Oncology team on board to advise whether some imaging study in the form of a bone scan or MRI would be recommended to be sure everything is ok in that regard. Otherwise, capsular contracture, which is always aggravated by previous radiation, is the most likely culprit. This tends not to get better with time and may require revisit with Dr. S to decide if release of the capsule and/or a smaller implant might help. "Trigger point" injections can help too if there are nerves that are contributing.
Re. the right side, not sure, depends on where the pain is, could be a number of similar things as above.
A lot of possibilities and potential solutions,
Hope this helps,
