Re: Swollen and bruised 1 week post op.

Yes! I joke that the robot beat me up. I have one bruise on my left side that runs from my braline down to my hip and is about 5 inches wide. My stomach is covered in them and I even have some on my legs.

Do you have to have chemo at all? I didn't know I had cancer but one of the tumors removed was found to be cancer and the doctor is suggesting 6 rounds of chemo for me.

Re: Swollen and bruised 1 week post op.

Hi , I am bruised on my left side about like you, my right arm, tops of both thighs and my whole groin area. Dr. called the other day and said it is grade 1a....did not spread to any lymph nodes. I believe I won't need radiation or chemo. My post op is Friday . Still having trouble with gas pains especially with eating. I still can't believe this is all happening. Bleeding started January 24. Now I sit here recovering from a surgery to remove the cancer.....it doesn't feel real except for how bad my body feels.
