Can I ask?

Advice re pain killers for my node clearance, mastectomy pain not bothering me much, 1 week post surgery, but the pain under my arm and down to elbow not nice at all, seeing consultant tomorrow for results, so will ask . At moment taking paracetamol and Ibrufen ,thanks in advance x

You can buy paracetamol & codeine over the counter which I found fairly good if that doesn’t cut it your gp could prescribe codeine. I have heard that tramadol (prescription) is good but super strong and can make some people feel a bit strange.

I was sent home with panadol and voltaren.  They gave me tramadol in the hospital,  but said it makes some people nauseous.

I agree, arm much worse than chest. Seems crazy.
