Re: Cording under breast

Did you have it under your arm or under your breast? Under my arm is fine.

Thanks for your reply xx

Re: Cording under breast

Hi! I had a similar thing after my lymph node biopsy and then again after my lumpectomy.  I was referred to physio, it disappeared the morning of my appointment. I was told it eases with exercise,  I would give your nurse a call to try to get referred.

Re: Cording under breast

Thanks....yes I do take Dr google with a pinch of salt. However it is reassuring on this occasion that he doesn't (for once) sing about cancer! It does seem to be something that happens after surgery and I have searched on here and found a few posts. Hopefully someone recent will come and talk to me xxx

It is quite likely that one of the ladies on here will come on and be able to give you a bit more advise if they have experienced it.  Why is it these things always happen at the weekend Smiley Sad

 

The trouble with the internet and googling widely is there is a lot of misinformation and misleading stuff out there as well.

 

Sending you a hug

Re: Cording under breast

Thanks for your reply. I have emailed my breast nurse already but since it was the weekend I thought I would try here to see if anyone had experienced it. From the Internet I would say it may be a mondors cord......this rubbish never ends does it!

Hello and welcome to the forum, no need to apologise Smiley Happy

 

I would suggest that you contact your breast care nurse and let her know what you are experiencing just in case it is cording as I believe they can get something sorted to help you with it

Cording under breast

Hi all....today while I was in the shower I leant forward and felt a pain under my boob (big boob, just over three weeks post lumpectomy, incision around nipple) I felt for the pain as I was bending down and felt what feels like a piece of string or cord from my body to my boob and this is the source of that pain. It's not visibme and I can only feel it when bending forwards and breast is hanging down (sorry lol) Has anyone got any ideas or had any experience of this.

Thanks in advance

Sarah
