Breast Swelling After Lumpectomy
I had my surgery on Feb 22 and have been doing fairly well. Went to my follow up appt and the surgeon was happy with how I was doing.
Yesterday my breast was sore and looked a bit swollen. Today the swelling has increased. The incision is center near the nipple and I also had lymph nodes removed. Underarm is not hurting or swollen.
The swelling seems to be spreading if that makes sense. Started to the left of the incision and is now to the left and up towards the underarm. A bit tender to the touch. Does not appear to be any fluid to the touch.
I wore the support bra for the first week as directed by the surgeon and then back to my normal bra.
