Swollen BAD 3 months after daVinci hysterectomy

I had a vaginal hysterectomy in June, where they found cervical cancer. I had to go back in with the da Vinci robotic deal to do a radical paremetrectomy, vaginectomy, and lymph node removal. I am SO SWOLLEN that I look six months pregnant. At first I thought it was just gas or constipation but nothing I'm doing is helping. I am a bit constipated but even when I go my stomach doesn't budge. It won't come down. I don't have a fever and I'm not worried about an infection or anything, I'm just dying to know when this stops!!! Lol. I look pregnant anywhere I go.

On a side note I have to do chemo and radiation now because they found a tumor on one of my lymph nodes. Sigh

Re: Swollen BAD 3 months after daVinci hysterectomy

(((AstraBianca))) I'm so very sorry you're dealing with this on top of everything else. I had a different type of surgery (open) and did have some swelling for a while but nothing like you're experiencing. I'm sure you've run this by your doctor, just to be sure (if not, please do!).

For any issues related to your diagnosis, we do have a Cancer Concerns forum you're welcome to check out as well, if you'd like. There's lots of great information as well as ladies who've been there/done that who'll be glad to help along your journey.

Hang in there, sister! You absolutely CAN do this! Remember, you are a SURVIVOR!
