I had a complete mastectomy-with the reconstruction surgery 9 years ago. Two months later I developed pain in my throrasic spine , and the pain goes around too my right breast. It is terrible aching pain, that never quits. I have been through several tests. MRI, bone scan,had the steroid injections 5 times at 3 separate pain clinics. On several different pain medications. I had the Medtronic Neurostimulation temporary implantd in my back. Nothing has helped me. Several rounds of Physical therapy. I suffer terrible. I'm on my back 80% of the time. Which is the only thing I can do that eases my pain. I have not even lived for 9 years of my life. I'm 64 now. Other wise I'm very healthy. . I have always been so active all my life. Bike riding, walking etc. now to be on the couch most of the time. I was doing some research on line. Found this Medical term called Alcohol Abalation. I've read that this procedure may help with nerve pain in my thorasic spine. does anyone know about this procedure? Does any one know about thoracic nerve pain in the back. Upper back.
