Doctor at hospital says my swelling is a normal side effect of rads and nothing to worry about.
Hope you're doing okay.

My boob is only slightly swollen and it's not sore at all so hopefully not lymphoedema. I'll also have a look at the other thread. Will let you know what happens.
I have breast & arm lymphodema also, there are a few of us who participate on the Lymphodema thread in undergoing treatment section, not many ladies seem to get lymphodema in the breast but there are a few , Mine is settled at the moment, saying that it is still swollen and pink but always is unfortunately ...but my last flare up was a few months ago when it was red and tender, join us on the thread if you need any advice or just for a chat
Hi Kelly Mc
Can I ask what symptons you had and how you were diagnosed? I'm asking because my treated boob has swollen so it is now larger than the other one. I went to the GP and she said she would refer me back to breast clinic as she was unsure what was normal after rads. Hope someone is able to answer your query.
