    I was also told that I would not have any feeling but after one year I have about 80% back.

    Cecilia, It takes a LONG time to get feeling back.... that is, if you ever get feeling back. Surgeons have to cut through many pieces of nerve tissue. I had a mastectomy 5+ years ago and although some feeling it back, most of the surgical area remains without feeling. Some women may respond with a different experience than mine. We are all unique just like our surgeries. Take care, Sharon

    It's going to take a long time to regain feeling if ever. Sorry
