Anti inflammatory gel?

Hi All :slight_smile:


Anyone know if you can use one of those anti-inflammatory gels like Ibuleve on your breasts?


I’m nearly 3 weeks post op - double mastectomy with immediate reconstruction taking paracetamol, Ibuprofen and Tramadol at night (also been on gabapentin for a while for MS symptoms) - but nothing seems to be easing the pain at the sides of my breasts!

Personally,I would not use the gel,however,if you do use it,don’t take the anti inflammatory tablets as well.Take care.

My oncologist encouraged it’s use, said it can be more effective than the tablets. But don’t take both.

I just used non perfumed cream as gentle stroking helped best!
