the top of both of my thighs got swollen, plus one side of my whooha swelled rediculously. Oncologoist said it was normal and it was due to removal of the nodes. once you start to heal more, it should go down. At about 4-5 weeks it went down significantly for me. Still not normal, but alot better. Oncologist told me tbat I should be happy that the swelling didn't go all the way down to my ankles.

Both of my legs were very swollen for several weeks post op and then it all went away. Just an adjustment to the loss of lymph nodes.
