rash & swelling after radiation
I am 2 months post 35 radiation treatments for Breast Cancer.  I continue to have a rash that comes and goes and have a lot of swelling with the rash, to the point where I have pockets of fluid under my arm, around my breast and going around to my back.  Is this normal or could this be lymphedema?

I did not have a rash or a pocket of fluid after my rads so I would for sure get that checked out by ALL my physicians.

You may want to check with your radiologist and then also check with the local physical therapists. There is usually one who specializes in lymphadema and mastectomy physical therapy. If it is lymphadema, quick help may stop a lifetime of swelling.

Best wishes
