Yes mine are short and sharp too....make me catch my breath , I spoke to the oncologist about them ladt week and he said he wasn't sure what the cause was for certain !!! However he did say they were unlikely to be caused by the cancer as cancer generated pain was usually lingering !!! Not sure how re-assured I was..LOL . But it does help to know I am not alone in feeling them .
Hope everyone is keeping well .
Hi I'm so gald I found this thread. Came on looking for answers regarding the intense stinging pains (like bee stings/burn sting) Im getting 6 weeks post rads. Spoke to oncologist 2 weeks back and she said its normal and can settle in weeks or years, very helpfull!!
Although I dont wish this on anyone I am glad I'm not alone, its driving me mad and to be honest getting me down a bit.
Hi I had 2 WLE and had exactly that for nearly a year, I felt like I was being tasered every 30 minutes for the first 3 months. It will stop I promise.
I have had sharp stabbing pains which made me wince. At follow up in May surgeon told me they are due to nerves being cut during surgery and are nothing to worry about. I have read that gently massaging the area can help. I use a little E45 or oil. Olive oil is meant to be good although I haven't tried it myself.
