Title explains it all pretty much. Anyone know how normal it is/have any experience with it? It was a benign tumor I had removed back in October, relatively close to the skin (nothing really invasive). Now I occasionally get a super sharp pain right where the lump used to be.

@Sb91: I had a lumpectomy where a benign fibroadenoma removed from my left breast in 2004 and I still sometimes get shooting pains at that spot. I also don’t have any feeling where that skin is. I don’t think its abnormal.

@Sb91: When I had breast reduction surgery, for about a year after I would feel random, very intense shooting pains. I’ve read online that it’s nerves regenerating/reconnecting after being damaged during surgery.

@braverbeating: yes, I had the same thing. Was debating scheduling another appointment but it doesn’t hurt enough to really distract me. I was worried about it maybe being some type of infection.
@DuckEBee: That’s interesting…I’ll have to look around more online for info.

@DuckEBee: +1. I had a breast reduction in July 2012 and had the same thing happen. My doctor told me the same thing: It’s just the nerves re-attaching.
