Hi reddragon,

I have put for you below the link to the area of the website that discusses cording:


Also the link to BCC’s publication regarding exercises after breast surgery to help you.


Hope this helps. Kind regards,

Thank you Jo,thats actually very helpfull and informative…why dont they explain this after surgery, its scarry enough haveing this done without worry afterwards about other thing… xx

Hi reddragon,

I have underarm pain i don’t feel any cording but the pain is in my breast area too and can go down my arm and round my back. In fact the whole side that my surgery was on still hurts and i am 1 year past surgery now. I see my onc in two weeks so i’ll see what she says.
