    I always felt a lot of tightness and muscular pain. It usually lasted a few days but it's manageable. Ibuprofen helps a lot, warm showers, and keep doing arm exercises.

    Glad to hear! If you want once you get closer to the last expansion you can get fitted for a bra at a mastectomy boutique that will fit the expanders and give you a more rounded natural look. It's usually covered by insurance and looks nice under more fitted tops or dresses. Best of luck and lots of hugs!
