Itching after node clearance op

Hi, had my op yesterday to remove the rest of my nodes and have been suffering from intense itching, especially in the affected arm which is also numb! Very frustrating as I can’t scratch to relieve! Anyone else had this? If so any suggestions to relieve it please x

Hi Marie, it’s nerve damage. It will go away eventually. I don’t know if your BC nurse can suggest anything in the meantime.

Try paracetmol, though you may be using it anyway
