I had a lumpectomy and full node clearance on 14.4.2015 and i was fine at first but this weekend my world has turned full circle and i am now quite distressed.
On Friday i decided to walk for about 45 minutes as i left hospital where i was told i had a heamotoma under my right arm after the operation and told to come back next Tuesday. As it was a lovely day and i felt the excercise would do me good but one hour after getting home my right arm and hand suddenly swelled up and was very painfull and frightening so i went to bed and raised my arm.
On Saturday it was better and the swelling had gone down however i still remained in and out of bed with my arm raised believing that more rest would be good for my arm.
This morning i was woken by what felt like a tap of water flowing from my underarm wound socking my nightie and bed clothes.
I have put on a new dressing and the wound is still leaking but not pouring anymore.
I don’t know whether i should go to A&E or wait until tomorrow and go back to my breast cancer nurse.
Please has anyone else had this experience
