Customer Question

Will my underarm be sore? Also Lymphodemia? I have been told that a pre op is not available to calm me down before I go to theatre - is there anything I can do or ask for? ( I would even consider an overnight stay if this was possible) but the surgeon said its not available for day surgery but I really do need something!

Hi there,

This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.

I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

What type of surgery you are asking about?

Lymphedema is not common right after surgery.

Arm bandage and elevation will prevent that.

Also the pain can be controlled by the narcotic medications as needed.

You should take diazepam round the clock 2-3 times daily for now to help with the anxiety.

Best wishes,

It was my pleasure to help you today.
