Thanks so much for that, you don't know how assuring it is to hear that someone else has had the same symptoms. I have been worried about it, thinking it wasn't normal etc..... I can now relax and wait for my radiotherapy to start. You are quite right in what you say about taking it easy, as soon as I do too much I notice my breast seems to swell more. Thanks once AGAIN....... Good luck with your radiotherapy, and hope all goes well for you.
Can someone give me some advice. On the 30th November I had the above operation. unfortunately after 2 days ended up back in hospital with cellulitus and a haematoma. Had IV antibiotics and all seemed to be healing. I m now suffereing with a quite swollen breast still and it feel's really lumpy, hard and sore. The scars are healing fine, but I am really worried as to whether this is normal 4 weeks after op. Should I seek further advice. I am due to go for planning for radiotherapy on the 5th Jan, or would you wait till then. would appreciate some feedback. Thanks. Ellie 49
