Is there a connection with these two conditions? I developed lymphoedema almost four months after my breast surgery which included an auxiliary clearance on my right side. I had just about got full mobility back in my right arm and after developing lymphoedema the mobility diminished and I have been having physiotherapy to regain my mobility in my arm and I have worked hard with my exercises to regain mobility and am doing well. Unfortunately a couple of months ago I started getting a lot of pain in my other shoulder and was diagnosed as having bursitis this developed a year after being diagnosed with lymphoma. My doctor has given me a steriods injection into my shoulder which initially caused it to flare up, this was so painful for about three days, taking pain killers didn't really ease it very much at all. To be honest the injection has only slightly helped with the pain. I tend to limit my arm movement so as to not to have to endure the pain. Sometimes I forget myself and I might reach quite directly for something behind me and will then jump back in pain.
I wondered if this has been caused from over use of the left arm because of not having full mobility of my right arm ( lymphoedema arm)
Has anyone else had this experience since having lymphoedema?
