I had a double mastectomy with a dflap(?) for the reconstruction. It is now October and i still have pain in my chest bone. Meds do not help, have been seeing a hypnotist for the pain butnothing is helping. Did anyone else have this pain?

    You don’t mention how long you’ve had the chest pain. It’s possible that you have pain from the mastectomy surgery. I would check with your physician. (And it’s DIEP flap, which stands for deep inferior epic Astrid perforator)
