    You can have tenderness, sensitivity, little sharp pains, or itchiness of any of the radiated area. Just saw onc two days ago and asked about mine after exam, and he said normal and could last even after a year. Mine just bothersome and disconcerting. Ended my radiation on June 4th this year. Jo

    Yes I finished 2 weeks ago. Nipple was itchy and a little tender. I kept it lubricated with Aquaphor and it eventually went away. Xoxoxo

      I might also mention that scar tissue can be a little painful. If I miss my stretching, even for a day I can become stiff in the surgical area and under my arm. The stretching and massage with a lotion can help break up that tissue. I've become high maintenance since April. Ha. :-D

    I finished rads on Thursday and pain is increasing with some itching too. Doc said it would continue for a week or so then taper off. I'll start Arimidex on New Tears Day.
