2 yr's ago I was dx with bc in my left breast. Had a mastectomy and a tissue expander. Had my exchange surgery in oct of 2010. In March 2011 I had my right breast removed,, Tissue expander. Had nothing but trouble with my left side the whole time. In Nov 2011 I had my replacement surgery, and had a new implant in the left side. I did therapy for months before thinking that would help. Went to one of the top PT woman in Pitts.
Still pain.. My chest hurts all the time. My side hurts,, feels like I am getting shocked. Said it is scare tissue. No therapy.. told to break it up myself. If it doesn't work.. I will have more surgery. Any advice? My left arm is getting weaker, my whole body is getting weaker because my chest hurts when I do anything. Going to have a stress test to make sure the ticker is ok. But got to say.. I am stressed out to the limit.
