Re: Surgery

Hi!

 

Just a quick reply as I'm just about to go to bed!  

 

I had a mastectomy and complete lymph node removal on my right side back in September 2017.  I found a heart shaped cushion to be an absolute god-send  - which I used to place under my arm when I slept.  2 years on and I still sleep with my cushion - it's become my new security blanket!!

 

 

The armpit discomfort far outweighs any discomfort from the chest area - keep up with the exercises too - in the long term you will benefit!

 

Take care x

I had lumpectomy and sentinel lymph node removal on Tuesday. I am very tender under the arm and i am struggling to get comfy in bed. Any help or advice would be very welcome.
