I'm seeking advice on an issue I'm having lately. 3 weeks ago I had surgery to remove the expanders and replace with implants. I must say this surgery was far easier than the mastectomy. Since then I have begun to walk and return to normal activity as suggested by my doctors. During my walks I have terrible chest pain on my right side (cancer side). The pain feels like squeezing and sharp stabbing. Sometimes the pain lasts only a few moments, others it will not subside for several hours. I'm also having severe cramping in my rib cage when doing certain activities. Sometimes the pain generates below my breast and wraps around my ribs and into my back. The Dr is having me log my pain and activities to see if we can learn something about this. Has anyone has anything like this? Any suggestions on what I can do?
