lymph update

Saw The Lymph Lady today and, as usual, she measured my arm and then did manual massage. Said all is well with my arm - so as usual i was being paranoid - but when I mentioned I had read in Wikipedia that tamoxifen can cause lymphedema, she said it cannot cause if but if one is at risk, tamoxifen can push one over the edge into it. Fab. I am on tamoxifen.
Then I come home and sit here and think about it. Not good.
So praying all is well with my arm.
And the damn tamoxifen is causing such bad hot flushes that my whole face goes red. Wonder if there is anything I can do to prevent it or counteract it. Must google it sometime but it's nearly midnight now and still gotta do lymph massage.
