Just wondering if anyone else has had similar experience. Had an ovarian cyst diagnosed in September which was recently removed by laparotomy. I'm 51 and have already written a post about the recovery from this which I guess is normal, but seems v slow... Since October last year, I have been getting an intermittent feeling of throbbing in my armpits which feels like a sort of hot throbbing and I occasionally get it further down my upper arms on the inside. I think that this is probably a menopausal symptom, but would be interesting to know why this happens. My doctor examined me a few months ago and couldn't find any bumps. Thank you!
