It's only been 2 weeks and 1 day since I had a Lumpectomy and 6 Lymph Nodes removed from my left breast. Is it normal to feel hard lumps and swelling under armpit and in breast close to armpi?. I also have numbness which I know is normal but I even have a hard time keeping my arm down. I have tried Ice Ice Ice and even a heating pad on low heat but don't get any relief. My doctor told me it might be fluid but to give it some time before they do an ultrasound. Very uncomfortable and very annoying. I guess I shouldn't complain, tumor was 0.9cm and they got clear margins and all nodes were negative. Will be following up with radiation starting next week.
