I am just worried becasue after having the fluid drained, I went back and there was 'nothing', consultant said it was damage caused by radiotherapy - but why can it be worsening, surely it should be lessening as time goes by, and not increasing?
The pain is actually wakening me up through the night. Think i might phone Anne (BCN) just to see what she thinks.
I'm not sure if I have posted in the correct bit, but I'm sure admin will let me know.
Diagnosed April 2014 with TNBC, Invasive Ductal Carcinoma - had MX in August 2014 to remove a 7 cm bad boy which had attached to the chest wall! Followed by FEC-T and 15 RADS.
My MX scar is well healed, but about 6 weeks ago, it became very tender, I contacted my BC nurse, who told me to go in to let the consultant check. I had fluid build up, and he removed 70mls of fluid there and then.
A couple of weeks after that, I started to get pains in MX scar again, was invited back in, no fluid, nothing found.
But , the pain is increasing, and I am getting worried, but dont want to contact them again, incase I am wasting their time, but at the same time, I had a grade 3 invasive tumor, and I am terrified it has come back. I just dont know what to do. I havent told anyone about it, I dont want to scare my family and friends, but I am beginning to struggle now.
My scar was numb up until recently - now I can feel when I touch it, can it just be the fact that the numbness has gone?
