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
