Re: Numbness and tingling in foot after lumpectomy

Hi Toulula

It's been a while now since my surgery and I have not experienced it anymore once I've started moving around so I'm thinking it had to do with sitting around for too long. Hope you are feeling better

Hi Kathy,

 

I had my results on Wednesday and they got clear margins and no spread in the limph nodes so great news, however, it was HER2 negative and Oestrogen/Progesteron negative. This is why they recommend chemotherapy to minimise the chance of it coming back. I was not expecting this after being told you have no more cancer, but I guess they know better, so waiting for oncology appointment now.

Hope you are well, seems lime the tingling in my foot had subsided Smiley Happy

Hi Flossie

 

Glad the BCN was able to ease your mind a little. I hope all goes well with results next Wednesday. Do post how you get on.  I had second operation because margins weren't clear.

 

Take care

Hi Kathy,

 

Thank you for replying. i have spoken to the BCN and she says not related to the surgery, so not too worried, although she suggested to see the GP if I am worried.

 

Sorry to hear you've had more surgery, I am getting my results next Wednesday, so a little anxious now. 

Keep in touch

Re: Numbness and tingling in foot after lumpectomy

Hi Flossie

 

I also had WLE and sentinel node biopsy in November 2013 and another operation in January this year. I didn't suffer from pins and needles so can't help you with that. If I were you I'd give your BCN a call and have a chat with her, she may have the answer.

 

After my second lot of surgery I developed pain in my shoulder so spoke to my BCN who said it may well have been the way they positioned my arm during surgery. It did get better so I presume it was what she said. Obviously your pins and needles need investigating and your BCN will suggest what you should do.

 

Hope everything turns out well.

Kathy

Numbness and tingling in foot after lumpectomy

Hi all,

 

Had my WLE and SNB last Friday 30/5/14 and a few days after I have started having pins and needles and slight numbness in my foot, the opposite side of my surgery.

 

Anyone experienced this and what can it be? It doesn't bother me too much, just hubby gets worried and wants to rush me to hospital which I'm not keen on right now.

 

Thanks
