I had an open biopsy on the 2nd of April. Everything was going good until a couple of days ago. I feel more swelling around my ear and down the side of it. The lymph node is swollen. I know it takes time to heal, but I am afraid of getting lyphedema(sp). The stitches are healing great....thank the Lord, because I am diabetic. But the lymph node under my ear feels hard and much more swollen. I feel like my whole ear is asleep. I see the doctor Tuesday and I don't want to have to make an addition trip in to see him. I can't afford 2 copayments. We prayed here last night....my daughter, daughter-in-law and myself and did feel the swelling go down a bit the next morning. I desperately need a healing and believe God is faithful. Thank you and God bless you all.
