Pain after Biozorb marker implantation and radiation treatment
I was diagnosed with DCIS, had a "partial mastectomy" in August 2016, and the surgeon implanted a Biozorb marker during the operation. The Biozorb is/was supposed to be reabsorbed by my body in a year, but that didn't happen, and it will take longer. In December of 2016, I had radiation therapy on my breast. Now, almost a year after surgery and 6 months after radiation, I have had pain in my back directly behind the radiated breast which comes/goes, pain under my arm, and the site of the surgery is still very tender and sore. When I put my arm over my head on the left side, I feel a tight, painful pulling sensation. The surgeon tells me I am not the only one complaining of this, and my radiation oncologist is sending my for scar tissue release physical therapy which will begin next month. Has anyone else had experience with the Biozorb marker and pain related to it?
