Hi I am also new to the board
Try GERMOLENE , it has a local anaesthetic. I had a masectomy and lymph node removal on 6 Feb and am having the same problems as you describe. I seem to be a bit "sweaty" there too and have tried to keep it as dry as possible It started about 5 days ago and it took me a couple of days to find any relied but this REALLY helps. I don't put it o the scar but under the armpit - also wear the biggest baggiest T shirt with a wide armpit When I sit down and/or sleep I have my little cushion to keep the inside of my arm and that area seperate. I do so hope that helps
I have needed to have a couple of lots of "old blood fluids" drawn off over the past couple of weeks and that is still a problem also have a tightness that suddenly appeared yesterday across the bottom of my ribs on that side I know we get strange sensations but has anyone else had this?
Hi, I am new to the board and wonder if anyone has any advice for this. since my op it feels like someone has taken a cheese grater to the top of my arm and the chaffing feeling (I know it isnt chaffing really) as my arms rub is driving me round the bend! any advice on ways of relieving this. thank you all
