I had a lumpectomy in February and just now started to have some pain in my breast where the incision is. My surgeon did an ultra sound and said there is nothing there, that was a relief. But I also have a tightness and pulling all down my left arm from my armpit to my elbow. When I raise my arm up over my head and extend the elbow you can see the vein pop out and I get a really tight pulling sensation all down the vein to the elbow. Surgeon say's it is fibroid strands and recommends having them snipped. Has anyone else had this happen? I am still on chemo, Taxotere, Carboplatin and Herceptin. Any advise ?
