hard area in the front of the underarm?

I am not quite three weeks out from CRT-D implantation.  I wasn't able to take any painkillers except day of surgery, and this one has been a bit more painful than my first device, so I only have been able to raise my left arm well this week.  Noticed a hard lump in the left underarm; I don't think it was there before the surgery.  No pain from it; just an exeedingly mild ache after showering with, of course, warm water.

Has anyone experienced anything like this?  I didn't think any part of any lead would be in my left underarm but am a bit hesitant to call the device clinic if it's not related to the CRT-D.  I embarass myself frequently enough without making a fool of myself there, too.  :)

Thank you!


Thank you, Angy!

All great advice!
