Re: Diagnosed 1999, no recurrence. Chronic pain biggest problem.

I believe in your pain! I, too, suffer from chronic pain. It's everywhere. Mainly I have terrible pain on my surgical side from rads. I see a lymphedema specialist who massages my scar tissue and relieves my lymphedema pain in my arm. I also have a machine that helps with the lymphedema. I also take Celebrex for my arthritic neck pain. And lyrica for my neuropathy. I'm 41. I feel like a mess some days. I had taxol, too.
