It's been about 4 months since my lumpectomy. I had 2 cm tumor removed and another surgery to clear the margins 4 days later when the tumor was found to be cancerous. I didn't think the pain was very bad after surgery, but it never completely went away. I started taxol treatments a week after surgery so I understand that the healing process would take longer. However, it's been 4 months since surgery and I still have pain at the surgery site. I have fluid build up and bruised scar tissue that came up on the ultrasound and MRI I had done a couple months ago. Just recently the pain seems to be getting stronger although the surgery site still feels the same as it did a few months ago. Has anyone else had lingering pain and soreness this long after lumpectomy? I'm so tires of sleeping in certain positions and adjusting my bras which rub right o n the site.
