A VERY STRANGE pain somewhere (Help from the ladies)

I had my posterior L4-L5 fusion on the 17th and I have a pain that is REALLY WEIRD! I keep getting these really severe burning/stabbing pains in my left breast when I take my bra off or left thing "lose" anyone else have anything like that happen? It feel like a cigarette being pushed through it. Any ideas?

  • I certainly cannot speak for the ladies, but it could be a nerve that was pinched while you were laying face down on the surgery table. It could be that your bra is pushing on the nerve (or releasing it). That could cause a burning sensation.

    Sorry that you're having pain up there!

  • LOL, That's kind of what I too am assuming. Being that there was no pain before hand and then pain afterwards.........I can tell you one thing, IT SUCKS! LOL but it is much more manageable than the back pain ever was!

    Rib cage pain here. I had a 360 fusion so I thought it might be my vertical incision on my tummy radiating pain, but not sure .
