Has anyone suffered from pain and swelling on the same side as mastectomy but almost on the top rib. I had mastectomy on 8 th November and had 2 few chemo sessions so far. Swelling and pain gets worse about 4 to 5 days after chemo. Had full lymph removal too as had grade 3 tumour... could it just be excessive fluid. Oncologist etc don’t seem too perturbed and just think it’s post surgery pain
any one else suffered this
i get get exactly the same - swell up and nerve pain just after chemo but it settles by the time I see my Onc a week before the next round. My breast care nurse seems to think it's normal but it's uncomfortable in addition to the other chemo side effects.
