update on swelling and radiation

I went to my rad doc today and he said the swelling in my breast is edema from the radiation and probably isn't connected to the lymhadema in my arm. Hopefully it will eventually settle down and disappear. He did postpone my December mammograms because he said that would just aggravate the edema.
I get my custom sleeve for the lymphadema later this week and am looking forward to using those instead of doing all the bandaging. Diane
