Had lympocele removed. Experiencing pain in hip and leg. Will the pain reduce over time?

I had a lympocele removed (pelvic right side Feb. 26). I think doc said he removed one lymph node also. Now when I walk I'm experiencing pain in right hip and somewhat in the front of the right leg (upper). Pain is excruciating but after sitting and rubbing muscles on right side of hip pain diminishes. Feels like when I'm walking (and other exercise like elliptical and bicycle) that the area in leg and hip feels 'tight'.

Is this pain that will recede over time...??

Hi, As you got operated recently, it will take some time for you to accomodate , for day to day work.
Here what you need is physiotherapy, and for that you should not fear of pain, and try to actively do all the movements, with out fear. If you keep the limb inert for fear of pain, it will become stiff, and movement will become impossible. If inspite of movement it is not possible, we can suspect some adhesions.
I to my patient with such symptoms prescribe neurotropic injection, foe 5 consecutive days, and there after periodically .
Thank you.
