Will there be a point where I will be able to make sense of breast self-exams? At this point, with all the mucking about the surgeon did in there over the past few months, I have these residual rock-hard lumps. Doing a BSE is pointless, because I know I have to ignore the major lumps I'll find.
Do the hard spots from a lumpectomy ever go away? Or am I now resigned to monitoring myself with my annual scans?
