I am 2 months post-op for a SLAP repair and bicep tenodesis. My left shoulder was healing well with good ROM and no issues with bicep except occasional mod pain. I have psoriatic arthritis and receive an infusion every 2 months of Remicaide. I am now experiencing severe swelling in my left chest, armpit & chest wall. Blood work shows no infection & CT scan negative for s/s shoulder/bicep problems. Pain can be severe @ times and pressure from swelling sometimes triggers spasms of ant. shoulder & biceps. Ortho MD does not feel it's lymphedema...anyone out there experience anything like this"..........please help!
