Pain and dysesthesiae in the scar following mastectomy


, : Pain and dysesthesiae in the scar following mastectomy. Ugeskrift for Laeger 152(42): 3081-3084

With the object of investigating the occurrence of pain and dysesthesia in the scar following mastectomy, 120 were interviewed by a standard questionnaire in a prospective study. These women had commenced postoperative control or treatment in the Department of Oncology in the University Hospital of Aarhus consecutively during a one-year period. One hundred and ten of these women were interviewed again one year later. In 92% of the patients with scar pain and dysesthesia, these appeared within the first three months postoperatively. At the first interview, 42 patients (32%) had scar pain and 15 of these (13%) experienced constant scar pain. One year later, 25 patients (23%) still had scar pain and 13 patients (12%) had experienced persistent scar pain throughout the entire year. Two of the patients (8%) with scar pain had constant pain while, at the second interview, 14 patients (56%) reported that the scar pain lasted for seconds. Twenty-seven patients (23%) had dysesthesia at the first interview while 29 patients experienced these continually one year after operation. Both the intensity and the duration of the scar pain diminished with the elapse of time. This held also true where dysesthesia were concerned but was not so marked.
