Mastectomy pain


Mastectomy pain

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?
