Hi Nancie!

Thanks for your post!

Breast pain after surgery does occur with some women so it's quite normal.

It's recommended that a special compression bra be worn for women who experience this pain. You can read more about it here: http://www.ctv.ca/CTVNews/Health/20061024/bra_heartsurgery_061024/

How long ago was your surgery? It's a good idea to talk to your doctor about this first to make sure there is nothing else going on, but breast pain is common after heart surgery. These bras help a lot.

Let me know what you think and I hope this pain eases quickly for you and your road to recovery is rapid.
