    Sorry you are experiencing these symptoms. I had tingling for a few months, especially in the shower. After 9 and a half years, I still have some numbness on the back of my arm, but thankfully I am used to it and it doesn't bother me. Everyone is different... Hope you are symptom free soon!

    I had only numbness. No burning, tingling, or pain. If I push lightly on the surgical area it's still sort of sore. I had surgery almost 8 months ago. It all gets better with time but the numbness is permanent. My surgeon told me that before surgery. You will get use to it. Give yourself some time. Our bodies have been through a lot. Even I get impatient because I want to feel totally 'normal' but then everyone here reminds me to be patient and kind to myself. You will feel the same. Take care

    The only thing I can add is to do the exercises to keep the area from getting stiff. Ask your doctor if there is a lymphadema therapist available that you can see. They can give you exercises and measure you to see if you're arm is OK. Follow up with your doctor with your side effects. Hope this helps, Sara

    I had lymph nodes removed Sept 18 and I still have numbness and all that. They said it could last a year or longer:( Hope this helps:)

      No, darn it! I wanted it to go way sooner than that! But thanks for the info. I'll make it just like all you other strong ladies.

      I had 3 nodes removed April 4, 2012. It's much better under my arm and down the inside the arm to the elbow but I think the numbness that is left if forever.

    My surgery was 8 months ago and I still get a little "burn" once in a while, not where the tumor was but under my arm where the nodes were removed. The numbness is slight and I don't even notice it anymore. Trust me, you will tune it out too. It's a small price to pay for your overall health, Renee and the good news is that it doesn't affect your strength in the long run. I lift weights just like I used to. Luck!
