fat after Lymphoedema

Have had scar tissue and seroma following my DIEP July 2014,in abdomen.Followng a further 2 ops to help reduce the fluid,was not succesful.Saw lymphoedema team,who have been helping with advice and some MLD.However, still there,and now discharged.She did suggest that sometimes following lymphoedema in the arm,if that goes,you can be left with some fat,which is not like our normal fat,which we can lose when exercising and losing weight.Has anyone had this before?did the fat disperse eventually?
