Line graph showing average level of breast edema in participants with Intravenous (IV) fluids vs. participants without IV fluids. Participants with IV fluids nā€‰=ā€‰13, participants with no IV fluids nā€‰=ā€‰4. Edema was measured on a daily basis in each breast and areolar of participants. An average daily score for each participant was then calculated and a line graph developed. This graph shows higher average daily edema ratings in participants who received IV fluids as compared to participants who did not receive IV fluids. The blue dashed line represents participants who received IV fluids while the orange solid line represents participants who did not receive IV fluids.
