Tendonitis or Lymphedema?
Background: bilateral mastectomy in June. Left sentinel node removed.
For the past 7-8 weeks I’ve been having pain in my left forearm/elbow/bicep. I originally thought it was tendonitis but last night my forearm was swollen. If my elbow is bent it’s not bad but it hurts to straighten or hold anything. I also have a puffy spot under my armpit where the side of my bra hits. That is also on the left side which is where my cancer was. My GP thinks it’s just a fatty spot from surgery. I see my breast surgeon on the 22nd and will go over everything then but wanted to see what you ladies thought.
