      Hi all. I am wondering if anyone has heard of the term Post lymph node dissection pain syndrome? 

      All the research i find is for breast cancer patients, but this research states that there are tons of people with this issue. Since my doctors are always trying to figure out why im still having such bad pain year after my surgeries, im thinking this could be a great topic at my next appointment. Just wanted to know if anyone else has heard of this or is experiencing severe chronic pain months or years after having their nodes removed. 

       

      thanks!
