Oncologist, Radiation 's  Response
Hi there, She is not on any pain killers and pain killers could be started by local practitionar. Whenever there is pain after breast reconstruction surgery, first issue to rule out is recurrence of cancer. Get her examined by the operating surgeon. Once recurrence is ruled out then other reasons of pain could be looked into. We generally advise a CT scan to rule out any recurrence in chest wall and lymph nodes if examination by your oncologist is normal. Take care
