    Side Effects (Lymphedema): I am now left with severe lymphedema on the whole right side of my body all from a mole on the right upper arm. Everything on that side of my body is bigger...I think people just think I am fat. It causes so much fatigue and the pain from the nerve damage is so bad. I find no relief from the compression garments..
