I had lung surgery on the lower left lobe Oct. 16th 2007. The incision was about 5" long. It hasn't felt right since it healed and now that I'm using the left hand more, it is feeling worse. Last night I had a sharp pain twice, then it got very swollen up. Looked like a potato was under the skin. I put an ice pack on it before going to bed and the swelling went down in a few hours. This morning it started swelling again without any pain (just a little uncomfortable), but it did it twice so far today. What could be causing the swelling? Has anyone had this happen to them? Thanks for any replys.
