I had a mastectomy with reconstruction for a small (no lump it was caught on mammogram)ductal infiltrating carcinoma on12/27/01. Woke up from the surgery with terrible pain in my elbow. Have had nothing but unbearable burning pain in axilla and chest since. I have been in PT since Feb. have had shoulder surgery for nerve impingement, implant removal, and two nerve blocks. Now I have developed lymphadema. I see an oncologist, neurologist, and pain management doctor. Am taking so many drugs. Have slept in the recliner since surgery in Dec. because I get a "charlie horse" in my armpit if I get in the bed. Has anyone else ever had this problem. Sure would love some help.
