Hi all you lovely ladies out there. This is my first post and I am interested to know whether anyone else has experience of a seroma giving them problems after chemo? A seroma is a fluid filled cyst that grows in the abdominal space after major surgery and often the fluid is re absorbed by the body without any need for intervention.
After Chemo 2 my right leg swelled from ankle to hip and having ruled out a DVT an ultrasound showed a seroma , which then went down spontaneously in 2 weeks. However, following Chemo 4 I was admitted to hospital again with spiking temps from infection of unknown origin and an ultrasound showed the cyst was now over 7 cm so they put a drain in for 2 days but less than 200 ml was drained and the fluid was not infected.
If anyone else has had experience of a seroma I would really like to hear from you.
Thanks for your help.
