Post Mastectomy patients can have pain or less sensation. As you said examination and investigations are normal, so no no need to worry about disease status as it is controlled. Regarding your problems you continue with shoulder exercises as advised and remain in follow up with your surgeon regularly. You can also take analgesic if problem is significant. But all this will settle with time.
