Mastectomy done 12/30/11. Took me 3 months to feel comfortable enough to be at home.
Took physical therapy for 6-8 wks to help with stretching and mobility. I have been tender and sore since the surgery, w/redness, itching, rash, soreness from the surgery site to underneath my arm. There are "ridges" over and under the surgery site. The site is warmer than the rest of my body. Is it possible for an infection to be inside? I saw my surgeon on Thursday and he wants to biopsy again which I will do. He has "never seen anything like it"...do you have any ideas what may be causing this reaction? I can't even wear my bras, have to use a pillow when I'm in a car.
