I had my mastectomy for grade 3 idc on thursday. Certainly more painful than i hoped but that shouldnt scare others, as likely on due to being on regular morphine for years has made me over tolerant to pain relief. My question or confusion follows. Why am i in so much pain that tuny movements hurt and yet to touch the area my whole cgest and underarm are dead as. No sense of surface touch at all. Is this normal and does the feeling return?
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
