Thanks for posting. Hopefully other Forum users will reply soon. If you would like to talk to someone about the seroma, you can phone our Helpline. Unfortunately we're closed today as we're moving offices, but we're open again on Monday morning at 9am.
I have breast cancer and I had an axillary node clearance 10 days ago and have developed a very painful seroma. I had it drained on Monday but my breast and arm are very painful and swollen and clearly the fluid has built up again. I was told that they dont like to drain the fluid more than once a week due to the risk of infection but I am in a lot of pain and cant fit into my clothes as my arm and breast are so swollen. Any suggestions?
