I had my surgeries and radiation in 2012. About 3 years ago the rib pain started and has only increased over the years. It can be quite debilitating at times. Believe it or not Icy Hot helps calm the spasms. I've tried to talk to my doctor about it, but she says as long as my mammograms are coming back clean not to worry. She recommended taking magnesium, which has not helped. I am glad and saddened to hear there are so many of us out here with this issue and all have the same issues with getting help regarding this. I don't want to live on pain killers and muscle relaxers but if this continues to worsen I may have no choice. I agree with other commentators out here that this particular side effect would have been nice to have mentioned. Hang in there and keep talking to your doctors as will I.
