So my doctors got this brilliant idea to take all the lymph nodes out of my pelvis (they thought they could avoid radiation if they could prove the cancer hadn't leaked into the lymphatic system). NO DICE.
I'm a year and a half out of treatment, and feelin' fine, but every now and then my leg swells. And my groin...yes, my groin. It swells all the time. Does anyone else have this problem? I saw a specialist and she recommended compression shorts. Sure, compression shorts are cool at the gym, but under a dress? Under jeggings? Over a bathing suit?
Does anyone else have awkward crotch swelling, and if so, any tips on how to deal?
