Shoulder Pain When Moved With A History Of Breast Tumor Removal?
My doctor wants to ask, my shoulder bone hurts when I move it especially when I take a deep breath, I have felt this pain since the surgery to remove the breast tumor on the right, I thought it would be like that after the operation… but it hasn’t gone away for 9 days. And also when I sleep, the pillow is high to make the surgical wound more comfortable…. And earlier outside my right hand was accidentally attracted by my friend and it hurts more when moved… please help doctor, thank you
From the information you conveyed, a history of surgical removal of a breast tumor may result in muscle complaints feeling stiff and uncomfortable around the chest, armpits, arms and shoulders, so you can wait until the inflammatory process from this surgery heals properly. Thus, it is hoped that after the inflammatory process and wounds heal, the complaints of the shoulder and surrounding areas will improve.
However, if the wound improves and heals, but the complaint of pain in the shoulder still persists, it is necessary to carry out further examination related to this complaint.
Some of the conditions below can cause complaints of pain in your shoulder, such as:
1. Monotonous body position, causing muscles to tense up
3. History of trauma to the related area
4. Abnormalities in the cervical spine, such as nerve compression
5. Infection of the tissue around the shoulder
However, all of these need to be examined directly by your surgeon to determine the cause. X-rays and blood tests may be planned by the doctor to determine the cause.
Treatment will be given according to the results of the examination obtained.
In the meantime you can apply a warm compress to the affected area, until you see your surgeon. Medications that have been prescribed, you can continue, because after the operation, the doctor can prescribe pain medication as well.
That's the information we can convey, read also shoulder pain.
