Julie I'm guessing you would have had Radiotheraphy , this is what makes you so tender, I finished mine in June last year and I can't put much pressure on my boob still, I was told it may always be like it so I don't worry Xx Jo
Myofascial releases with certified lymphedema therapist will help. I treat this regularly at Vanderbilt in Tennessee
Go to a physical therapist that treats with myofascial release. Takes 6-12 sessions at 1x a week
I treat this regularly. Look for a clinician that does myofascial release.
Hello My surgery was about 4 months ago and lymph node had a splinter in first node, so early days I know but having lots of pain, there was an infection which a course of anti-biotics did the trick., it is where the scarring is under arm and nipple area.
so I feel for you if 18 months down the line you are still sufferring :-( I suppose it all has to mend and knit back together. I find sleeping a problem at the moment as i sleep on my side, and the emotional side also keeps me awake also, so it is nice to chat to like minded people.
all the best Elaine
