Oh Louise I do feel for you. I had double mastectomy September 2015 and now have torn tendon in my shoulder and having mri on 11 December, it looks like I will have to have operation and six weeks in a sling. Hoping I can have keyhole surgery like you. Did they just numb the area round the shoulder and did you feel anything? It seem to be one thing or another!! Wising you all the very best and love.

I was fully under as they shaved the bone ...yuk. but a guy waiting in the room with me had done the same as you and they were going to numb his arm not a full general but perhaps with that operation you get a choice he said they told him he would feel pulling and tugging but no pain ..
