Just finished radsx15 after masectomy and chemo. My ribs under where breast was itch and are sore but I was told this is very common. I read the actual ribs can fracture years later but it is rare. We are all individuals
and react differently. I had constant itching in the affected breast 2 months before the diagnosis and it is still there and you have this. I do feel sorry for you.
I had Stage 3 as well but only had 3 nodes removed (Sentinel biopsy) whereas you had more removed. I asked several times if they were going to remove more lymph nodes and was amazed they did not but I think this is all very individual . I had a Pet scan which showed cancer in local nodes very slow-growing and the chemo worked well so maybe that is why ? Good luck

Dr said no OTC meds. I have internal blood seepage that has not been found yet. I take some lightweight narcotic! And hate feeling doped, cant/refuse to use when working or driving.

I still get rib pain nearly 12 months after finishing radiotherapy. I ran for the first time in years last Thursday - as I'm doing a race for life in July & want to be able to run it. So I bought myself a new sports bra which is under wired & I haven't wore an under wired bra since my op. We'll have I suffered since! But I won't let it beat me - what's a bit of discomfort after what we've been through! X

I happened upon this site today and I'm so glad I did!! I've secretly been a little worried because I too have been having sore ribs. I thought it was in my breast at first, then realized it's under my breast, on the ribs. But they only hurt when I feel around, or when I try to sleep on my left side. (I also will only wear very comfy bras!)
I had a lumpectomy on left side in November 2016, followed by 16 rounds of radiation at the end of December 2016 and into January 2017. The lumpectomy was a breeze compared to the "burn" after radiation. OMG! It was awful! But I healed up nicely, have had really good range of motion, but had pretty bad fatigue. But that's so much better too. Then started getting the sore ribs. So now I can see that it's to be expected and I can totally can handle that. I don't go for my first mammogram until July, but I'm not worried anymore!
Thank you everyone!!

I have only just discovered this site today as I was searching for answers for my rib pain which has moved from the front to under my arm. (Still tender under breast)
I had a lumpectomy in 2002 on my left side and radiation. I have been very blessed with no problems, bar sensitivity the my breast and tenderness under my breast on the rib.
Last year I started to get like a dull pain through my left breast from the sternum across to the left.
Every year I return to RPA hospital for my mammogram and/or ultrasound. I mentioned this to the doctor, and for reassurance she sent me for a bone scan. Turned out all good!
From last week my ribs under my arm is very tender to touch and a pain which is pulse like happens on and off during the day, it does worry me why it is happening, but after reading all your comments I realise this is what is going to happen to us. I didn't think after 15 years it would become more intense.
Has anyone had this experience after 15 years on.
