Why does my skin feel like I have a sunburn after prophylactic mastectomy ? When will it go away. Surgery was 3 weeks ago.

Pain

I guess you are describing pain at the surgical site. Post operative pains are normal. Some areas of initial skin numbness goes through a phase of skin nerve hypersensitivity as the numbness resolves. This is common & normal and often starts a few weeks after surgery and gradually resolves. See your surgeon for any concerns.

Surface skin pain on left side of abdominal area and left side of lower back.  Feels like a severe sunburn.  No marks or redness.?

Shingles

Skin
Many cases of shingles has been missed in ERs because of pain that no direct cause can be found and then a day or more goes by with the pain persistent and then out of the blue a rash composed of clumps of tiny pustules shows up in a geometric pattern and the diagnosis is obviously shingles. They must be treated immediately with antiviral drugs to help healing and prevent post herpetic neuralgia.
