so, my question? I'm having some pain and it's scaring me. the pain feels like a bruise does when you push on it. It is on my reconstructed breast, the cancer breast! it is located right beneath my breast, on top of my rib. I am having a hard time deciding if the pain is in the tissue of my breast or on the bone(my rib). It is kind of in the "fold" of where the breast ends. Does this make sense? I have alot of fat necrosis in that area and wonder if that is what the pain is. I wonder if it's pain from the surgery still(but that was over 8 months ago), and I wonder if I'm just getting some feeling back, it's been really numb. BUT, mostly, I need to know - is this what rib mets feels like? is the pain like a brusing type pain?
