I’m hoping others who have had trachelectomy and/or lymphnode removal might be able to help…
I’m three weeks post op after my trachelectomy and removal of 15 lymphnodes. I’m recovering fairly well and am up and about, walking around every day etc. But for the past week or so I’ve noticed a strange aching feeling in the tops of my legs/groin area/hip flexor area. It’s a dull ache and it doesn’t seem to be getting any better. Sometimes I find that moving around helps it, but other times it seems worse if I’ve been walking too much.
I don’t think I have any swelling - maybe a tiny bit at the tops of my thighs on this inside, but it’s hard to tell (I might be being paranoid about that!). But the pain is quite annoying and I’m really worried it could be the beginning of Lymphedema. Or maybe it’s to do with nerve damage? I am still quite numb at the tops of both legs.
Has any one else experienced something similar? IDE be really grateful for any advice/assurance.
