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?
Now that I have your attention: In this year of electing a president, all cancer survivors need to find the candidate who supports Cancer research-a-ie; stem cells, which could very well bring the cure to all cancer. The politics of cancer can kill you..of over 10,000 grants from the National Cancer Institute, only 500…
