When I raised my arm to wave at friends yesterday, I got a pain on the inside of the arm from the pit to the wrist, you know in the area of the arm where if a baby pinches you it really hurts. This pain is as though something is pulling. No swelling. Should I call my doc and which one -- onc or surgeon? No pain otherwise.

Good Morning Judy! Did you have lymph nodes removed from under the arm that is hurting? I would see if it continues. Baby it for a couple of days. Have you lifted anything heavy or carried anything heavy w/ that arm? I would say call your onco if the pain continues. I have that sometimes and have been told that it is the scar tissue from radiation pulling. If you get any redness, warmth or swelling, call your onco immediately.

Hugs...Deb

Thanks, Deb. And yes, that is the mast arm with 14 nodes removed. Actually I do very little lifting, but I do almost all of it with that arm because of a shoulder injury to the other one. I rarely lift and 20 # is my limit -- just groceries and laundry and the occasional dog under 20 #. I did wave at someone with that arm -- that's when I noticed the pain. Got a sleeve on it right now and we'll see how it feels tomorrow. Thank for the info on radiation.
