Q: Pain 23 days post op. Should I go back to see my PS?

I'm Still feeling pain in the lower side section of my breast 23 days post up. It's actually keeping me up at night now as it is quite uncomfortable. I'm trying to to do too much but I have a baby and so at times I have to lift her. Should I go back to see my PS?

The magnitude of the symptoms you describe are more than I would expect at 23 days following surgery.  While this may still be within your normal healing response, it would be best to have your surgeon provide reassurance that all is well by scheduling a visit with him/her.
