Tail of Spence Removal
During pregnancy with my 1st child, I had Tail of Spence swelling. After delivery, it was downright painful - the worst part of pregnancy/delivery. With my 2nd child, the same was true. I am now 16 weeks pregnant with my 3rd, and already experiencing severe pain in my armpit where the swelling has stayed since my 1st pregnancy. I can't touch it or put any sort of pressure on it without pain. Is this something that can be fixed with surgery? If it is for reasons of pain, will insurance cover it?
