I think the wait is OK. I had to wait 8 wks without there being a problem.

You had a lumpectomy so the tumor must have been small so you had a much less chance of your cancer spreading anyway.

Do they know why the fluid is building up?

I suggest you relax and take some deep breaths.

Keep us posted on your results.
