Re: Post op

Mine was uncomfortable for months  - it's still a lot more sensitive even now than the other boob - particularly when having a mammogram .

Re: Post op

Thank you for that, reassuring so no need to post to ask the nurses bit, should it become uncomfortable, I will ring 'my nurse'.

Thank you

Re: Post op

Hi ,you could post this query in the Ask the Nurses section of the forum - there is only limited monitoring of this part of the forum by the moderators at the moment .I will post you a link. Im quite sure you could also contact your breast care nurse if you are worried they will still be wanting to support you post op .After I had my lumpectomy I had a hard area around where they had removed the cancer and it was there for quite some time - I can still feel it slightly 5 years on so very likely just scar tissue - I've had normal mammograms and been examined many times .

I had grade 3 DCIS surgery on Friday 13th March and therapeutic mammoplasty, recovery is going well as I followed the advice given.  However, during these difficult times I don't want to hassle the  Mermaid centre with what is such a minor thing but I have a hard area in my boob where the cancer was - I'm sure this is quite normal, will it go away eventually or do I learn to live with it?  It's not painful at all and I'm delighted with my new, smaller boob, be glad when I have a matching pair although that's a minor detail in these strange times.
