    I think Dave (waspkfd) experienced something similar. Could also be seroma.

    Sounds like a seroma. A collection of fluid that needs to be drained. Call and talk to the doctor’s nurse right away in the morning.

    HI D,,

    Ya I had the same think, I was starting to thing the surgeon left a pile of gauze in there lol… Yes it took about 4 or 5 weeks to go down slowly but surely 🙄 … Nothing but time helped.. :D real pain was that it felt like a sunburn under my arm…. 😈
