I had a bilateral mastectomy in October with immediate reconstruction, followed by tissue expanders, then the replacement surgery in January. I completed six weeks of physical therapy for cording on my left arm (ulnar nerve) in May. I still have intense and constant shoulder pain, but the cording is gone. It is worse in the mornings, but doesn't improve much over the day. I have been told I will not develop lymphedema because I only had sentinel node biopsy and no radiation. But what is this shoulder pain? I can't seem to get an answer. Has anyone had this experience, would massage therapy help? If so, what kind? Any help would be appreciated.
