Cording - self help

Hi.  I had a mastectomy with immediate reconstruction plus SLNB on 10 March.  I’ve developed a stinging/buring pain in my armpit and down my arm and it feels tight and painful.  I think it may be cording.  Does anyone know what to massage/what exercises I can do to self-help. 

Hi amd3pmg,

I’m sorry to hear you’ve been experiencing pain. You may find these exercises helpful: breastcancercare.org.uk/sites/default/files/publications/pdf/exercises_after_breast_surgery_web.pdf

Best wishes,
