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.
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
