I had breast cancer Diagnosed Feb 2015.Had lumpectomy, 4 lots of chemo and 25 Radiotherapy. Had 6 nodes removed thankfully all clear, then had lynphodema in breast. Started on Anastrozol but joint pain was terrible so changed to Exemestane. Joint pain is still bad and some days I feel so old and weary but must admit pains not as bad as before. Mainly wanted to mention rib pain on side I had op and booster radiotherapy I first noticed it early 2017, it came on as a sudden cramping stitch feeling and would last for a few minutes then disappear for a few months and suddenly reappear. But since late 2017 upto now the pain has been constant everyday and seems to be getting worse. I did mention it to my GP after I self diagnosed that it was probably a side effect from the radiotherapy which she agreed and that was it!!!!! I was also diagnosed with Osteoporosis after having bone density scan last year. Anyway I decided to book an appointment to see my oncologist to discuss the rib pain just have questions and need assurance for peace of mind. Having 3rd Mammorgram on 27th Feb hoping and praying all will be clear.
