    I also had melanoma surgery 7/02 and lymph nodes removed 4/03 and had a problem with it in the beginning after surgery but not to much now. I couldn't find much help for it and the docs said to deal with it, there is not much you can do. I then found out that the local hospital had a class on lymphedema and how to help control it through massage and exercise. They also make a sleeve for your arm or leg that may help.
