    My wife had a partial vulvectomy for Bartholins gland cancer. She had lymph nodes removed in both groins and in the iliac region.

    The surgery was on Nov. 8, 2011. We have had 28 radiation treatments to the pelvis. The obe problem she is having is her belly and pubic XXX and her "lips" swell something terrible by the end of the day. We expected leg swelling due to the loss of the groin nodes, but had never heard of the other swelling issues. Anyone else experienced this? Anything to help? It does go away by morning.
