My only problem after the lumpectomy so far is the itching! OMG I've never felt anything as itchy as this. People say it's a sign of healing. Any suggestions welcome.

    Ruth. Try placing a cold pack on it .. Of course don't put it directly in your skin .. Or you could rub. VitE cream/ oil as the skin may be dry ... Make sure it's healing and the cut is not infected !!.

    Thank younger this. I have tried the ice Packard it does work but the itch is almost painful. I'll give the VitE cream a go. Thank you
