post mastecomy pain

hi ladies

i don’t know if anyone can help but here goes.i had a mastecomy 6 years ago with radiotherapy and have had on and off pain around my scar. lately though when i wake up the pain seems worse and it extends down my body.i try not to lay on that side but alway’s seem to wake up on that side.i have been checked by a registrar so nothing sinister so just wondered if anyone else had experienced this and if so do you have any tips that might help.thanks x

Hi lady_chihuahua

Whilst you wait for the other users to reply with their experiences do give the BCC helpline a call on 0808 800 6000.  Here you can talk through your symptoms and cocnerns with some one who will offer you a listening ear as well as support and practical information.  Lines are open Monday to Friday 9 to 5pm and Saturday 10 to 2pm.
