Hi reds have you got any problems keeping your arm straight and raising it above your head. Yvonne
Yes, pretty normal - I had mine in mid Sept with LD flap. If you put lots of Bio oil on the scars it really helps and general massage it in to the sore area, it relieves the pain a bit. Lots of physio exercises too will help. The fact that you have had rads won't help either, keep using the aqueous cream as if it is going out of fashion! Any questions please feel free to PM me.

following mastectomy and lymph node removal six months ago i still have lots of tightness and discomfort around scars and underarm area, can anyone advise if theyve experienced same and if it gets better. I know its a long process ive just finished chemo and about to start radiotherapy in may, im also having the 3 weekly injections, but this is really getting to me. Thanks
