Just a note to say "Thanks" to those who responded to my question! I do have another question. My doctor told me the depth of invasion of the cells were only at 6mm and she felt confindent that this had not spread any farther. Does anyone have a similar experiance? How about any problems with having lymph nodes removed? I have heard there can be a problem with swelling. Let me know your comments!

My own experience... I had some lymph nodes removed and expected swelling. My doctor explained that the lymph nodes taken were not in the pelvic area (I assume they were more abdominal?). Anyway, from time to time, if I have a long day, there will be some very minor swelling on the sides of the heels of my feet. Strange, isn't it? But that's all.

All that being said, my doctor still checks me for swelling every time I see him.

Funny thing Maureen....I have the same thing. My left ankle is puffy on the outer side by the bone. No one is concerned about it but me. I do believe that it not as pronouced as it was months ago but is still there. I always show it to ALL my doctors, including my regular MD and they all just say, "yes a little puffy" and that is that.

I guess it not serious so now I just ignore it.
