I have had pain along the incision and under right breast
.Primary Dr. Said It was my rib. He puts it back in place good for awhile. Then it comes back. Also can only wear bra for a short time. Anyone have the same problem. 3rd CT Scan still clean

Hi, Does it feel like you are wearing a bra even when you are not? It is common for people to experience discomfort if that is what is happening, especially along those ribs. It is probably nerve pain. Anytime they manipulate bones you are in danger of nerve damage. My internist gave me gabapentin (Neurontin).
