I recently had a bilateral mastectomy. I have had fluid

I recently had a bilateral mastectomy. I have had fluid buildup in the area of the mastectomy having it drained weekly. I have been complaining of extreme bloating, it is so bad now my whole belly has expanded. Could this have anything to do with the fluid buildup from the mastectomy?

Recently had a bilateral Mastectomy with a DIEP with Flap and still recovering, no additional cancer found in lymph nodes and advised cancer free, now advised I need to go for chemo a 2 yr regime because I was HER2 positive before surgery. If I am free of cancer why can’t I be put on an oral pill for say 5 yrs.

I had bilateral mastectomy almost 3 weeks ago and drains out a week ago. I have fluid building up and its very painful. Doc said to do arm circles and my body will absorb the fluid over time. But it is excruciating and I wanted to know if ice or heat would help.
