Ever since my radical hysterectomy a year ago, I've experienced swelling in the lower abd/pelvic region. It gets especially bad after I've been active (walking, jogging). Any suggestions on what I can do about this?
After my rad. hysterectomy, my right leg began to swell. My doctors did not know what was causing it. After a year, and a cellulitis infection (skin infection), I found out by googling it on the net. I had lymphedema. Because of radiation and the surgery, my lymph system had been damaged in the abdomen/leg area. I would ask your doctor about lymphedema and get a referral to a lymphedema therapist just to check it out. My leg is very swollen now and it is hard for me to walk. The more I do on my leg, the more it swells. I know your swelling is not in your leg, but you may want to look into this. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org if you need any more info.
Hi, I was just looking at other pages but I post in the ovarian cancer page. I stongly suggest you get a Blood work called CA-125 and visit your gynocologyst, you must discard Ovarian cancer. Symptoms could be gas, constipation, nausea, fullness, loss or gain of weight. If you have anymore questions please look post me in the ovarian page. God bless.
