I had a mastectomy in January 12 -- left side only. I had reconstruction, and the implant has bothered me from the beginning. I decided to have it removed, hopin it would ease the pain that stops me from living my life.
It helped a little bit, but I still have horrible nerve pain all the time.
Has anyone else encountered this "post mastectomy pain syndrome" -- if that's what this is?
Please let me know if you did and what you did to ease it. Nobody understands. I think my family thinks I'm just weak and unable to recover.
