Re: Ear piercing

I was pondering on doing the same thing and came across your question, so wondered if you ever got any further advice on this.? If you could share with me appreciated

Re: Ear piercing

Well, I can’t think that it would, but then I’m not a medical person. But.....My lymphodaema was triggered by a bout of sepsis in my arm on that side. Sepsis was through a tiny scratch on my hand rock pooling with my grandson. I would just check with your nurse/ Onco . It’s about being absolutely germ free, isn’t it? X

Ear piercing

Hello, This could be a daft question!  I want to get my ear pierced (helix) if I have it done on the same side (right) as my

mastectomy, with full lymph node clearance could it triggery lymphoedema? 

Has anyone had this done?

Thoughts?

Thank you x
