Question: vaginal bleeding after hysteretomy/ct scan shows lymphnodes

 bigmomma - Fri Nov 04, 2005 9:23 pm

I'm concerned I've been in alot of pain lately. I had a total hysterectomy 6 yrs ago. I've been passing clots. my doc told me to have a ct scan it revealed lymphnodes in my lower right pelvis. what does this mean, i've been having breast pain and tenderness in my underarms.

User avatar Hi bigmomma,
Were your fallopian tubes and ovaries also removed? What problems were you experiencing that you had the hysterectomy? Was it stated that the lymph nodes were suspicious in nature on the CT scan results?
