I just had my cryoablation procedure with Dr. Holmes yesterday. The tumor was about 2 cm. Today, my breast is about twice its normal size and the bruising is considerable. How quickly can I expect the swelling to last? I expected the bruising, but the amount of swelling is a little surprising. I am guessing some of it is saline that was injected. I am definitely not complaining but wondered what other patients' experiences were. I am thrilled to have done this versus the lumpectomy or mastectomy I was was being told were my only options.
