Hi Powdow, I also developed lymphoedema after surgery and radiation. I have swelling in left arm, but it's mild. I've had it for 6 years now. I only have to wear sleeve on flights and lifting weights. It has gotten better over the years. So don't lose faith. I had Diep flap reconstruction in May. My lung was also punctured. Did you have any complications resulting from that. I developed lung infection in hospital and it's now end of September and till have lung infection. It keeps coming back.
