No I don't have any of this just pain in the muscle. I forgot to mention that is silicon under the muscle

Has the pain started now or its been there since you had it?

Well nothing abnormal in shape or superficial appearance but they shouldnt hurt after nealy 4 weeks . Tylenol or ibuprufen should help but surgical opinion must be sought if it persists to rule out capsular contracture

It start few days ago and I haven't done any exercises using the pectoral muscle

Alright well you can manage it with pain relief as i mentioned, if it goes away then fine otherwise see your surgeon for any complications like capsular contracture.

Hope it answered your query
