ouch !!! pain in leg following surgery.

Hi there, I have had 2 operations now, a full mastectomy and 2 weeks ago full lymph node clearance and I have had on both occassions pain in my right leg(right sided breast cancer). The anaesthetist explained that when they cauterise the nerves electricity is used and so they put a plate on the side of leg as an exit point. This was so painful last nite it took me 3 hours to get to sleep. HAs anyone else experienced this??
Love Sharon xx

Have you had this confirmed as the cause of pain by a medic? If not you should get checked out straight away to eliminate other causes such as DVT. Do this straight away if you havnt already been checked.

Hope it sorts out soon.
