      I haven't had that operation or your type of cancer so I can't answer that specifically, but I always say, with anything that is concerning you, call your doctor and tell them what's going on, it my be nothing, could be something, which ever it is, they will tell you if it's something to be concerned with. If you let it go and it turns out to be an issue, you have lost valuable time. Make the call. Good luck in your treatments!

      Yes, it is normal. I had a right lobectomy 8 years ago. At times I would get a sharp pain across my front to my nipple. It is much better as time goes on but still sensitive. I think it has to do with the muscle they cut or do something to during the surgery.

      Just found this website. Your question interested me because I had a lobectomy April and still have pretty bad pain in the same place as you. Has it gotten any better yet. Just wondering what to expect. Blessings on ya

      I didn't have a lobectomy, but a right side resection. My right breast was terribly sore after surgery...felt like the surgeon had gone behind my breast with a hand-mixer and just went to town! It was from nerve damage from the surgery. I am 11 months post-op and the breast pain has pretty much gone, just a flare-up occasionally.
      I still have considerable pain, though, along what I assume is the inner incision.
