Hi All! I had a lumpectomy in August. The upper part of my left arm is still numb to touch. I have a lump that feels like muscle under my arm near my surgery. I wonder if it might be scare tissue or something to do with the 19 lymph nodes they removed? I'll see the onc Monday. It's a worry! Best to all, Dee smhair

Yes, Dee, the lymph nodes surgery is in an area where there are lots of nerves. Even after 12 years I feel numbness and an occasional sharp pain. It is part of the gift that keeps on giving. Hugs, MK

MK,
Thanks for your reply. Now I feel that it's normal to have these numb feelings and can expect for them to hang around. Hugs, Dee
