I have had a swollen arm for 6 months. All tests

Customer Question

I have had a swollen arm for 6 months. All tests (ultrasound, CT scan, test for Blood Clot) come back negative. One other test I had, can't remember the name showed a blockage in my one arm but they still don't know what is causing it or seem to concerned. Waiting to get into a edema clinic and a plastic surgeon. The edema clinic may treat it but wont find out the cause and not exactly sure what a plastic surgeon could do.
Do you have any suggestions?

I feel for you, really depends on what's causing the blockage, is it a clot? sometimes lymph drainage is blocked and that cause significant amount of swelling. do you know what caused it?
