Re: pain in ribs

Hi all - I had right MX and ANC in September - finished rads in December. I am suffering with the rib pains too - it comes and goes just like you are all describing - did anyone get any advice as to what causes it? I'm due to see breast surgeon for 6 month follow up post surgery on 29 March and it's on my list to mention.

Re: pain in ribs

Dear Jenny,

I have the same issue and it gets better and then gets bad again. I think it has to do with lifting with my left arm. They removed one lymph node under that arm and if I pickup my granddaughter, 23 lbs, I seem to have worse pain. I cannot stand a bra and wear a stretch camisole instead. I have large breasts and that really does not give me much support.  Have you consulted your doctor? I am six months out of lumpectomy and radiation. Thanks!
