Swelling post lumpectomy surgery
dsc Member Posts: 41
Has anyone had swelling in the area of their lumpectomy? It’s not where the SLNB was (it’s not under my arm) but above where the lumpectomy scar is. It’s like I can hear water in there. I know some swelling is to be expected but should the area be elevated and filled with liquid? Also, any suggestions on what I can do to lessen the swelling?
@dsc - I had a similar experience after my lumpectomy and it was a seroma (this article explains more. Your situation could be very different. Please contact your surgeon as soon as possible for their guidance.0
