Post mastectomy pain after starting tx for mets
Hi, this is my first post. I was first diagnosed 6 years ago, had a mastectomy and took 5 tamoxifen for 5 years, finished last April. I was diagnosed with stage 4 in November, extensive mets to bones and liver. I've been taking femara and kisqali for a month now. It's been a hard adjustment.
I have had significant discomfort at mastectomy site since the surgery, but it has increased considerably in the last 2 weeks, to the point where i thought i had a broken rib (which of course freaked me out - thankfully scans refuted this) . My oncologist suggested that PMPS may have been triggered from either the mets or the treatment. Wondering if any of you have thoughts or experience with this.
Thanks for any input
