Painful lump/spots after lumpectomy not going away?
I am 10 weeks post last surgery (ILC
with lumpectomy and then re-excision).
I have had some painful spots since the 1st surgery, and then in general a larger tender spot under excision. I've been told that one is a seroma, but I am experiencing sharp pains, tenderness dull aches in these spots. I just finished radiation (and also got a nice case of shingles early on during radiation). While I am dealing with the skin irritation/rash its also these lumps that are sometimes so painful.
Has anyone experienced this? Do I reach out to my surgeon and press the issue? In early days I was told scar tissue under excision, seroma etc…Could it be my remaining clips/scar tissue are not healing as they should?
Any input from those of you who have had lumpectomies is appreciated.
