Pain in the groin area after radical hysterectomy for cervical cancer. Is the pain due to the removal of lymph nodes?
Hi I am 2 year post radical hysterectomy treatment for cervical cancer 1b2 I have for the past 12 months had sharp pains in lower right groin area on occasions more severely when I am desperate for the toilet, number 1 s and 2 s! Also a dull ache in lower back in almost the identical area which feels as though it s always there but aches more on excercise my consultant says the pain may just be from lymph node removal when I had op but I am concerned it maybe something more sinister, I have had no scans since my treatment or blood tests
usually, removal of lymph node dosenot cause pain, unless, there is damage to nerve during the operation. as it is started after 2 years, we need to rule out recurrence of disease. hence please get the scan done to rule out the same.
