I had iDC stage 2-3 with + lymph nodes and treated with chemo for 6 months end of 2017. Double mastectomy 1/2018. Then 6 weeks of radiation. I had three fat grafting and then implants 4/2019. I had hysterectomy and I am on an aromotase inhibitor and took Ibrance for 16 months as part of a clinical trial for “early stage breast cancer”. I had cording in my arm after mastectomy off and on but none in say the last year. I have developed pain in my radiated breast. Burning and aching pain similar to what I felt with cording. I have a long thick line of a “mass” across my breast from one side to my nipple. It is like a cord and painful. Oncologist thinks it’s scar tissue. He will order ultrasound but thought it was not worrisome. Has anyone experienced something similar

It sounds more like cording or scar tissue, but I am glad they are taking it seriously and checking on it. Keep us posted.
