Re: Tingly fingers!

Tingly Hi Carolyn,

I had my mastectomy mid March. I have started having a tingly hand and elbow- not all the time but it comes and goes. I am also numb under my arm and wound.

I was told that it was the nerves that were disturbed during the op, that are starting to repair. This is probably particularly true of you since you had full node clearance. Hope that helps....
