Hi, I have lymphedema in my right arm because of breast cancer and the removal of all my lymph nodes. I have a compression sleeve that I wear when it swells. I also have a compression pump that I use. Yesterday I woke up with my arm swollen (worse than it has ever been) it aches, is red and hot to the touch. I went to walk-in yesterday, they ran a blood test to check for blood clots, which came back negative and prescribed me an antibiotic. Has anyone else experienced this? does anyone know what causes this or what could it be? any help would be great, as today it is swollen more than yesterday.
Thank you in advance
