Sharp stabbing pain under arm.

I had a right mastectomy on May 18/04. The incision is healing well, but I continue to experience sharp, stabbing sensations under my right arm. Could this be the nerves growing back again?

It almost feels like something sharp has been left in following surgery.

I would like to hear from anyone who has the same feeling in the armpit area.

Re: Sharp stabbing pain under arm.

Hi Nightingale,

Sure hope those stabbing pains are getting better for you now. While I cannot comment on the pains, I do a woman at the university who described similar feelings. The pains eventually went away for her.
