I recommend going to the emergency room, the pain you are describing should not be ignored.

New pain is never normal. It's quite possible you tore the capsule or sustained a muscle strain or tear around the implant. The high sugar could also potential mean an infection or inflammation. If the pain is getting worse, your best recourse would be to go to the emergency room for further investigation and/or an MRI. I hope this helps.

If you cannot get an appointment with a plastic surgeon until January 13, I would suggest calling your primary care physician or getting an evaluation in either an urgent care center or hospital Emergency Department, especially if your sugar is not controlled.
