Went through a groin dissection in March 2008, stage IIIa. Had a miserable time during recovery, lots of pain, had to use a walker for the first two weeks, then a cane for two months. I had three months of physical therapy before I could walk normally again.
Over two years later, I still cannot straighten my leg fully, as I get pain in back of my knee and at the incision site. I still have no feeling in my upper thigh/buttocks region and fight a daily battle with lymphadema. I doubt I will ever be "back to normal", but I have learned to live life despite the stuggles. I'm just happy that the battle with the beast is over for now.
I wish your husband all the best throughout his recovery!
