The Cause Of Lymph Node Surgery Is Still Swollen?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Former surgeries in general do not leave pain and swelling for up to 1 year, especially if the initial one is only in the neck, then spreads to other members of the body. Swelling and pain usually arise from inflammation, which inflammation usually does not last that long.
So it's also important to know what kind of swelling you mean, whether the shape is a lump, or there is an enlarged part, because these two things also have different meanings. So far, the possibility that can occur is a disturbance in the nervous system, which may be injured when you carry out surgery, or who are so close to lymphoma that you have had, so that until now the complaints are still persistent. This might happen because the nerves are responsible for delivering pain, itching, heat, cold and various other sensations to the body.
Our advice for now, is that you can check yourself with the doctor who used to treat you, or go to a general practitioner first to be ascertained through the initial examination, is it true that you experience that is related to your surgery history or something new. New handling based on this examination.
In the meantime, even though it has been going on for a year, maybe among the things you can do to help reduce pain while waiting for a doctor's examination is to warmly compress the painful and swollen part, and take over-the-counter painkillers by reading the rules of use listed. So, hopefully answering your question.
