Serious itching after breast surgery.
Intense itching one year after mastectomy
I am sorry - it sounds like a pretty bad night!
- Your description suggests that the nerves are returning - which they can do this late after surgery.
- The result is 'dysesthesias' - unpleasant nerve sensations of which itching in one.
- Contact your breast surgeon and ask either for a prescription to control the pain or referral to a neurologist who can prescribe such medicines.
- The itching should improve a nerve feeling returns to normal.
Always consult a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
