Hey. I don't have breast cancer, but thought maybe you all could answer a question for me. I had a breast reduction in January, and since, my breasts are very tender and have shooting pain in them that varies depending on what part of the month it is. Usually it is not both breasts, it's usually the right side. The last time I went to the surgeon, he said it was from nerves that were cut during the surgery and it would go away in time.
I figured some of you have had breast surgery (I know mine was elective, and in no way do I mean to offend anyone here or make it seem like I've been where you are) so maybe you have had similar pain. Does it go away eventually? Should I worry that it's been 11 months and I'm still having "nerve" pain? When it does hurt, to apply pressure makes it feel better, so I walk around holding my breast (my friends are used to it, so they don't even notice anymore).
Thank you if you have any suggestions or advice!
