Plum: I think you are right to be concerned. That doesn't mean not to do the surgery, but good to be informed. Maybe they don't have to remove ALL of the nodes? Maybe get a 2nd opinion? I can't tell where you are located, but an NCI facility would have the most updated treatment info.
I have mild breast and truncal LE after ALND surgery. I wear a compression bra 24/7 but luckily it hasn't invaded my arm. I do wear a sleeve & gauntlet for flying.
Below is a link to one of the best sites for information. IT was created with input from BCO people.
In addition, there are lots of LE threads here that will be informative.
