I have had the nexplanon for about five months now and had no serious issues but for the last three weeks i have had pain in my left breast (the implant is in my left arm). Only my left breast has gotten significantly bigger in size and there is a couple firm spots on the left side. I have been to my Dr. And was told that the cause was from the implant and was just told to put cold compresses and take pain pills. The way i physically feel is more severe to just do what was suggested. I have been trying to get a hold of the fda about this to get more information. I'm also getting another opinion from other doctors.
Let me know what comes of the 2nd opinion. It looks as though all the symptoms you report are listed, have you seen this list?
The fact that its just one breast and the amount of pain you have, I would say its not just the side effect of breast tenderness of the hormones. It could be one of several things, most having no relationship to the implant., but they need the attention of a dr asap.
