For several months prior to being dx with breast cancer I had a terrible dagging pain under my shoulder on the left side of my back.
 
Then I was dx with breast cancer in left breast.
 
I am about 3 weeks post op from masectomy, and that pain seems to be getting worse, Did any of you have this during the dx????
 
I read on a web site that pain on left side under shoulder blade may be a cause of someother organ that has trouble, and it included breast cancer.
 
I am going to talk to the surgeon on tusday.

Please let us know what the doc says.  I'm interested.  I've heard of a "bc path," that is the usual path that bc metastices take.  It includes the brain and back.  I'm not sure about left back or blade or that stuff, though.  I know to watch for headaches and back issues. 
 
Hope it's just a pork chop bone caught somewhere and you can get it out easily!

i am assuming that the breast doctor would have known, although I am bringing the idea up to her.

SHe did say that he cancer had not metast.

I had the reconstructtion suregery on tues, and I have to tell you, if I knew how painful it was going to be, I don't think I would have had it.  THe masectomy was a piece of cake compared to this.

 

I think it was just me though, becasue of what evryone else says, it should not be like this.

mY BACK AND CHEsT HURT SO MUCH I could barly take it.

IT felt as  though someone took a 2 x 4  and broke my ribs and my back.

I am waiting for them to call now to get some answers.

What kind of reconstruction did you have done? I hope you are feeling better soon.

Did you have radiation? You may want to ask about costochondritis, it is an inflammation of the muscles between the ribs or something like that. I'd definitely go talk to the doctor though, it may certainly not be BC related, but that much pain warrants a medical exam.

FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!
Today is Saturday, and it is the first day I was able to get up without help, I even took a bath!!I know Gross....Tues to sat is a long time, but honestly, I couldnt if I wanted to.
They also increased my pain meds, so I am sure that may have helped.
I have a doc., appt on wed., Going to let him know about the back pain too.

THE RECONSTRUCTION THEY DID : was expanders then saline injections...then a permanent implant.
I am truly looking forward to this being ALL over.

My fear is that I still have the right breast, If I would have known all this I would have had both removed.
I will forever fear the breast cancer may go into the right one.
I know that we arn't suppose to borrow trouble, but the thought is here.

I won't have to have radiation, and as far as chemo, I havn't been officially told yet....BUT, i think my doctor is giving me time to digest all of this....she said last week, that the test hasn''t come back yet regarding chemo, and for me not to worry about that right now...FOR NOONE SHOULD LOOST THEIR BREAST< LOOSE THEIR FAThER AND LOOSE THEIR HAIR ALL IN ONE MONTH> So I am stil waiting.

ALL I DO KNOW FOR SURE< S THAT I AM SO THANKFUL FOR ALL OF YOU> I know I can come to you for questions & answers, for SUPPORT, someone to cry to, someone to tell my fears to..I love all of you.
