I had this as well, It meant as nodes were clear I could have an immediate implant without the worry of the effect rads would have

Had mastex about 3 weeks later and was virtually healed

Do rememebr to do the exercises though.

Hi Betnie610

I had a stand alone SNB approximately 3 weeks before my mastectomy. I had little pain after the biopsy not sure how long you will have to wait. The good (if you can say good) is the soreness will all be on the one side 

Hope this helps

I have just had this and wondered how other people recovered from it ready for the next op soon after?
