As your operation was very recent and wounds take a number of months to settle down it’s unsurprising you have changes taking place while it is healing.
However, it’s important to check if your wounds are healing normally. You could contact your breast care nurse or surgeon for them to assess this properly. They may also be able to recommend some different pain relief which is more effective.
Breast Cancer Now offer a variety of services to support you now or in the future.

I'm new to forum. Had lumpasectomy on right breast plus 3 lymph nodes on 25 October. Dressing taken off week later. All looked dry and ok but since they have been taken off I am feeling painful lumps under both scars. I'm on pain killers still and cannot wear bra at moment. Is there something wrong? Should these lumps hurt like they do? Skin seems very sore to touch too. I'm moisturizing daily but worried something isn't right?
