Re: advice please

I had my lumpectomy back in Jan of this year, and my breast is still very tender! Also under my armpit..it's sore and feels tight. Has anyone ever experienced itching in the breast? I did in my left breast before I found out about the cancer and I still do in both breasts at times..
