      I had horrid joint pain on Arimidex, but on Aromasin I had mood, memory and cognitive issues...I was taking Rx after Rx to combat side effects!!!

      I had problems with Femara. Lethargic and depressed. On Arimidex now and it is similar to menopause, grouchy and at times I overreact.

      I had my mastectomy with tissue expander in Aug 2012 with expander put in place. That stupid thing is still in place 16 months later thanks to radiation destroying the tissue. I am waiting to have the DIEP surgery in late January or February. I feel tight all the time and have been in PT for 5 months now. A week ago my plastic surgeon took all the saline out of the expander to help relive some of my muscle tightness. It has helped a lot I am only taking a muscle relaxer about once a day rather than around the clock.

      Like Leepenn said, physical therapy is probably needed. I also did yoga, skin rolling and just as much major stretching as I could and as often as I could (2-3 times a day) without injuring myself. If I hadn't, I would have gone crazy with the feeling of dental floss being yanked around my chest and I would eventually have yanked back hard enough to really XXX up. Cocoa butter might assist also (pregnant women use it on their expanding bellies).
