Hi to you all, it's been some months now since my operation and my first check up is in May, it was delayed due to work stuff, I wonder if anyone has similar issues to me, I have alot of pain in my pelvis area which is on and off, I know my bladder and bowels will never be the same, I can't hold my wee very well and I have 5-6 bowel movements every morning and my diet is really ok and sensible right now as I have put on so much weight since my diagnosis, although this is a very slow process. I have pain on my right side, centre of my tummy, I expected nerve damage and lymphedema etc. Perhaps I am worrying too much. I also seem to have developed a swollen right armpit aswell..........I'm actually eating salads, fruit for breakfast, I'm being good, honest . Thanks for reading this and best wishes to you all. Deb.
