Hi, new to this but here is my story. I had a breast reduction and tummy tuck july 31st 2009. I look beautiful, tummy tuck no problem, breast reduction has turned into chronic nerve damage nightmare! This pain does not rest, I have tried everything. PT, Water PT, accupuncture, pain management (nerve block), neuro drs. The anxiety from this pain is intense...menopause full blown after surgery. On gabapentin..was 100 mg x 3 daily..no help..neuro dr now upped 300 mg x 2 a day. I am in so much pain that I still can not wear a bra and the nerves are so sensitive I am lucky I can wear a light tee shirt at times. Any suggestions..I am exhausted from morning to night. Every dr I have seen said this is rare, except my accupuncturist who seems to be the only dr that has been honest with me. I have done a lot of research and this is not uncommon at all. I am 53 years young and it has really taken a toll on my body. Anyone out there have similar conditions, sad to say that no dr has an answer for chronic nerve damage! How do you deal with this...my GP dr can not help me anymore, we have exhausted options. Tried Lyrica, Cymbalta..nothing seems to work, can not take vicodin. Just want to get some relief without losing my ability to function a normal life. Anyone thinking about having a breast reduction done in the future, please re-think your options. I had it done because I had back,neck and shoulder pain...that's gone but the nerve damage caused by the breast reduction is 1000 times worse. I would appreciate any suggestions.
