HI, I've had lymphoedema in my r leg for just over two years (April 2016). Prior to that 2011 (and ever since) noticed significant swelling in r groin area. Onset of lymphoedema was sudden (over the course of a day), just in lower leg to start with, but now spread so is the whole of foot leg and some of lower abdomen, all on rhs.
No obvious cause of onset - no cancer treatment, infection, other trauma.
Wondering if the abdominal hysterectomy I had 2008 could possibly have affected lymph nodes in groin? the swelling there is v close to the abdominal scar.
Hoping to hear replies, but even if I don't, many thanks for reading. Only found this site a couple of weeks ago, and have already learnt so much from you all - a godsend, as my GP seems to know v little about lymphoedema and it's been a struggle to get a diagnosis.
