My mom had a masectomy of her left breast 7 months ago and since then has had daily vertigo. She is unable to walk without a cane and often falls. The daily dizziness she suffers from is more devastating to her than the masectomy. She has been going to lots of doctors and they had her stop taking her tamoxafin to see if that was causing her problem but it did not help. They said her ears are fine and so is her bloodwork. They are now scheduling more MRIs and other tests. She just cannot bear the thought of more tests. Has anyone else ever suffered from this after a masectomy. I am desperately trying to figure out what is wrong with my Mom so she can forget her ordeal and move on with her life. She has become so depressed and worried that she has become a burden on her husband and her family. We tell her that this is so untrue, but she still is so unhappy. I have been all over the internet to see if there is some link between her surgery and the dizziness, but I haven't found a thing.
