I had a mastecomy June 2013. Recently the arm on the affected side seem’s to have become thicker than to other. I have noticed that my watches have become tight and uncomfortable. Could this be due to Lymphodema?The arm is otherwise ok apart from aches if I have done to much. Does anyone have problems?
