lumpectomy two days ago and abdominal swelling
I was expecting some minor swelling at the lumpectomy sight and the area near the sentinel lymph node removal. I didn't expect to have abdominal bloating/swelling. The doctor says it was probably caused by the medication they gave me before surgery when I had an empty stomach. He said it will take awhile for my system to "wake up". Has anyone else had this problem. I'm worried that my abdominal bloating/swelling may be due to the lymph node removal.
