    I had my slnb about 10 days ago and have had increased swelling/lump under both incision rt arm is the worst about the size of a tennis ball if my arm is raised smaller if it by my side and left arm is about half the size. Ice and ibuprofin do not seem to help follow up is not toll next week wed. Anyone experience this before?


    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…. 😈
