i am 5 weeks post op from mastectomy and reconstruction using an implant. I have been getting a lot of swelling the last few days with soreness and discomfort. I had started to feel better last weekend and this has come on overnight. I was sent to a&e on
monday and told it was fluid build up. My breast care nurse told me to monitor it and to ring 111 if I got worse. I can’t go back and sit in A&e for 4 hours. I don’t have a temperature or any redness, it does feel slightly warm with the pressure. I’ve also been getting tenderness in my back. I’m really starting to feel like I’m getting rundown with this now and no one can tell me if it’s normal. I’ve been taking regular painkillers and they aren’t helping me. Any advice would be appreciated.
