Just noticed I have pitting lymphedema in my arm

Just noticed my puffy looking right arm where I had lymph node biopsy 2 months sho is leaving a pit when I press on it. The seroma I have had on my chest since surgery has also suddenly got bigger.

Looking for experiences of how lyphedema started for others, whether it can be temporary or completely irreversible once it starts.

I am also interested in hearing about any experiences of lymphedema bypass surgery.

  • Hi  

    I'm sorry to read about the problems you've developed since having a lymph node biopsy. I don't have any relevant experience to share with you bit noticed that your post hadn't had any replies yet. Responding to you will 'bump' it back to the top of the discussion list where it'll be easier to spot.

    While you're waiting for replies, it would be great if you could pop something about your diagnosis and treatment into your profile as it really helps others when replying to you and also when looking for someone on a similar pathway. It also means that you don't have to keep repeating yourself. To do this click on your username and then select 'Profile'. You can amend it at any time and if you're not sure what to write you can take a look at mine by clicking on my username.
