Hi there, I have recently been diagnosed with Lymphoedema of the mons pubis following a routine hysterectomy in June 2014, not cancer related. No lymph nodes were removed, but my lymphatic drainage was compromised through surgery. I would love to hear from anyone who is experiencing the same, and how you learn to cope with it, as I am told its a very rare complication. I am 6 weeks into diagnosis following severe cellulitis in January, hospitalised for 1 week on UV antiobiotics, and further infections which I am still trying to cure so I can start treatment at the Lymphoedema Clinic. Help or advice will be much appreciated. Thanks.
