After effects SLNB

Hi I had a therapeutic mammoplasty on 23rd May and lymph node biopsy.
I am experiencing strange sensations in under arm a fairly constant burning/sharp pins and needles type Apart from this only mild pain in breast .
Could this be due to dye used ? Is this a common symptom others have experienced
Wondering how long it will take to settle xx

Hi , I had lumpectomy but 3 nodes . I had burning and pains for a few weeks . Sometimes a random stabbing that made me jump . And burning as if it was chapped . It’s the area healing and it calmed down after a few weeks . Check with your BCN if it doesn’t calm down x
