Lymphedema and needles/blood pressure on the affected arm
I had 17 lymph nodes removed after my BC. I have had some lymphedema in the breast area but manage it okay when it happens. My question is, I need a shoulder reconstruction on the other (good) arm. This means they will have to use the left arm for blood pressure monitoring and administering drugs. I will discuss it with the anaesthetist and surgeon when I see them prior to surgery but has anyone else had something similar and how did you go post surgery?
