Weird

February 8, 2012 by Julie Moon

I remember my mom talking about strange feelings in her breasts after surgery.  It feels like I have an itch or it feels like a tiny sharp pain from time to time.  I can’t itch it though.  I have no feeling in my breasts.  She said it was the nerves starting to reconnect.  I’ll have to research that more.  It’s a very strange feeling.  The only thing I can compare it to is like when you have your mouth numbed for a filling and you can’t feel your jaw/cheek…that’s what my breasts feel like all day.  It is WEIRD!

I also have lots of brusing so that I can feel and it hurts and oddly enough pain medicine doesn’t really do anything for the bruising pain.  I had an oversized rib (dr said it was cartilage) that was located on my ribs on my chest and the plastic surgeon had to shave that away before he could do any reattaching of vessels and arteries.  It is no longer there….that is weird.  I am pretty bruised in that area as well.

The other thing that hurts lots tonight is under my left arm where they removed the two sentinel lymph nodes.  It is so very sore.

I’m sure these won’t be the last thing that is weird!
