Hi everyone. I was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer in March 2020. I ve had chemo and radiotherapy. Treatment finished in October of 2020. Everything was okay till September 2021. I ve had shoulder pain which a physio told me was stress. Now I am getting pain in my right arm. It seems to hurt more when reaching upwards. Is this something to be worried about and should get checked out. I d appreciate any advice. Thanks.

    You might want to consider if it is a frozen shoulder, depending on what movements hurt the most. I am told it is common after surgery and/or all the messing about with your armpit. Dependng on your age can occur spontaneously at around the time of the menopause - hormone related!
