Hi ms j cohn
It's Emily here from Breast Cancer Care.
I'm really sorry to hear about the pain you're experiencing. While you're waiting for replies on here, I thought I'd let you know that some of our telephone volunteers have described having pain after their mastectomy and lymph node surgery too. If you'd like us to arrange for you to talk to one of them about practical tips and suggestions, feel free to give us a call on 0345 077 1893.
Wishing you all the best in the meantime.
Emily at Breast Cancer Care
I had a single mastectomy with lymph node clearance and implant (expander) 3 weeks' ago.
I am in a lot of unbearablepain at the top of my arm - tingling, throbbing, burning etc - anyone ever used TENS machine?
Any suggestions apart from usual painkillers? Taking diclofenac, paracetemol and started amitriptiline last night.....
