i have about 300 to 400cc of fluid in my mastectomy site. I call it my "booblet". The surgeon said it should resolve on its own bit may take up to a whole year. I could have it drained, but this would probably need to be repeated 3-4 times. Since I am having no pain,I decided to wait and try some PT instead. I also had some lymph edema in my arm with some painful cording but it is improving with a compression garment and PT. OK, now my question- has anyone else experienced swelling of fluid in their mastectomy site and what worked for you? Should I consider having it drained or just wait and see? thank you.
