Sensation Loss After Mastectomy
Is it somehow possible to somehow improve my odds of regaining sensation after mastectomy?
Things that may help are to re-educate the nerves in the area. Use various textures to the area. Try different pressures and movements to allow the nerves to rebuild sensory cognition. Use these items when in shower, putting on lotion, or just massaging the areas. Loofahs, washcloths, scrubs, etc. are good. Hope that this helps. Best wishes and hopes for a great outcome!
