Why am I profusely sweating after breast cancer lumpectomy?
I am 59 & read how other women are having a problem with profuse sweating. I recently had a lumpectomy & then my doctor went in & removed 20 cancerous lymph nodes that were very hard & big. Two weeks after surgery I started to have these terrible sweats. My hair is also short & it literally drips like I got out of the shower & didn't dry it. I try to do my house work early before I shower but it never fails that I start to sweat afterwards anyway. I can't even get my makeup on if I'm going somewhere because of it. I will be starting a regimen of chemo & then radiation & then I'll go on harmones last. I will be getting a port installed because I have bad veins that probably won't hold up. Sometime during this week I have to get a PET scan, Bone scan, & a heart scan but I can't remember the name of it. I told my oncologist who is affiliated with MD Anderson about it but he didn't recommend anything yet. Feedback would be greatly appreciated.
