Survivor since 2012
These answers helped me so much that I wanted to offer my experience, too. I am three weeks out from bilateral mastectomy with expanders and had my first fill yesterday. I've been strong through all of this, but yesterday was a challenge. I was smallbreasted before and am almost the smae size now. This fill was 50cc at my request. Doctor would have done more. Last night was intense pinching under arms and much discomfort. I took valium to relieve muscle spasms and Advil for pain. The GOOD NEWS is that this morning my breasts are round, perky, and not so painful. The fluid/expander system does move and adjust. Do not become discouraged. Be brave!
