Hi, I have been reading the posts here for a while.
I have lymphoedema in my arm and chest area after surgery for breast cancer.
I have nerve pain on my left side under the arm and am on medication for it. I had chemo, surgery and radiotherapy which finished Dec 2013.
My problem is that I have pain going under my arm to my elbow which is sore to touch, I have also noticed that movement is more painful and seems to "pull" where the nerve pain is.
My lymphoedema nurse has said that the arm pain is due to late effects of the radiotherapy.......
Has anyone else here got any advice on lymphoedema with pain...
I am getting down with everything now, I want my life back..... .
Have you been offered MLD?
Yes, I had 3 weeks of mld and light therapy in November. I am not allowed any more on the nhs until nearer ny next appointment in 6 months.
