I am coming up on my one year from surgery mark next month. I had a lumpectomy followed by radiation. For the past few weeks I feel like there is a bruise on my side, below where my bra strap goes on the side where I had my lumpectomy. It feels like a black and blue but there is no visible bruise. When I stretch my arm up like to reach something, I feel pain. It also hurts when I lay down, and also when I rub my hand along that part of my body. Could it be nerve damage? Or a side effect of radiation? Has anyone experienced this??
