Has anyone experienced Lymphedema in the groin after prostate surgery including lymph node dissection. I am desperate to seek advice on how best to deal with this before it spreads to my legs. Thank you for any advice that can be shared
Contact your clinical nurse specialist (Macmillan nurse). They will refer you to their Lymphedema clinic.
If you have been allocated a urology nurse you could give him / her a call but in many areas, it will be your GP who needs to make the referral to the lymphodema clinic (if this exists in your region). If there is no lymphodema clinic in your area and you don't have an allocated nurse, you should discuss your concerns at your next appointment with the surgeon.
