How can i get rid of cording in my arm ?

I had a bilateral mastectomy 8 weeks ago and have developed cording in my left armpit and down my arm to my elbow. I need advice as to how get rid of it . Why does it happen ? 

Hi Sunset50, 

I am sorry to hear you are going through this difficult time. I am sure some users will be along soon to share their experiences of cording and offer support. 

You may also wish to look at and post on a existing thread called Cording advice where users are already sharing experiences. 

In the meantime please do call our helpline at 0808 800 6000 who will be able to talk to you about why this happens, give advice and offer a friendly ear.

Best wishes,
