I am 4 mo post mastectomy, finished with chemo(praise the Lord!!) and back to work. Trying to get my life back on track. I am not finished with the expansion of my breast, Dr says I am going a little slower than most but that it is ok. I has a wonderful recovery from the surgery, no complications and the Dr was amazed at just how fast I did recover but now as I am getting bigger, close to the end of expansion I am in so much pain I can hardly stand it. The las two have really been bad. Sharp stabbing pain in my chest all the way back to my shoulder blades and down my arm. In the mornings when I wake up I cant even sit up in bed. Yhe doctor says some people experience more pain than others. Have any of you experienced this kind of pain with expanders??
