Due to the removal of the lymph nodes in my left armpit area, my body is less able to process lymph. This results in backed up fluids, especially in the upper left quadrant of my body.
Aside from the tightness in my swollen skin, it also feels like my arm weighs 100 pounds. With no gallbladder and a reduced lymph processing system, plus previous bladder and kidney stones = significantly reduced body cleansing.
My arm is swollen and the skin feels tight because of my lymphedema, which could also be contributing to the pressure and headache my shoulders and other muscles, which all stay constantly contracted.
My shoulders are so sore and tight. My arms and shoulders are spent, burnt out and maxed out. I feel like I’m dragging sand bags with me shoulders are being pulled to the ground
My left hand is swollen and the skin burns.
