I have primary lymphoedema in both legs which is managed by thigh length compression stockings. This week I have been diagnosed with cervical cancer and am to have a radical hysterectomy in 3 to 4 weeks time. I have also been informed that my pelvic lymph glands are to be removed. I will meet the surgeon next week to discuss the full details but am concerned that my swelling will get worse with the removal of the lymph glands.
