Hi there ~

I understand your concerns. I believe that the swollen itchy arm and painful fingers is due to the recent surgery for the implant, however if you believe that this might not be the case, investigations to find out what it might be might be in order. Please visit with your doctor who can examine the swollen itchy arm. I also feel like your arm might be getting worse since it has also spread to your fingers. The ER may be a good option if you find this discomfort not going away. I hope this helps.

Take care and have a lovely day!
