3 Weeks Post Mastectomy: The Weirdest Side Effect

1 Comment

I can’t believe that it has been 3 weeks already since my surgery.  I’m healing well but still sore.  I can lift my arm almost all the way up but when I try to go all the way, it feels the same as when you try to do a split and can’t get there.  That stretchy, pulling sensation and tightness.  That should go away soon.

But with all of the soreness and pain, there has been one side effect that has thrown me for a huge loop.  Whenever I get the chills or goosebumps, my goosebumps under my arm on my mastectomy side hurt.  Like really hurt!  It hurts to get goosebumps!

I love the fall weather that we’re having but it comes at a price.  I try to wear warmer clothes but still sometimes that is not enough.

How strange, right?  Has anyone ever heard of anything like this before?goosebumps_2443265b
