Is it normal to still have a burning sensation in my muscle near my sternum 7 months post? It just happens to be on my breast that has slightly bottomed out and where the muscle got partially detached along my sternum.... the bottom of my breast is also numb on that side.
It could just be nerves or it could be the muscle being stretched by the implant still.I also get burning in my nipple, but I'm not sure if it's related.My surgeon doesn't know why I'm getting burning in my sternum in my muscle.
A: Burning 7 months after is not common
Burning 7 months after breast augmentation is not common. Likely origin of the problem is nerve injury. If symptoms improve with implant manipulation then one can consider revisional surgery for symptoms. Otherwise it be best to review with your surgeon nonsurgery options based on your symptomatology (sometimes medications such as neurontin, or desensitization techniques via OT).
