Melanoma: Pain/lymphoedema

Most people can get back to their normal activities after a couple weeks after surgery on their lymph nodes. If you continue to have pain, swelling or limited mobility you may need to see a physiotherapist who will show you some exercises to help you move normally again. Depending on where the lymph nodes were removed you may have fluid and swelling in your arm or leg. This is called lymphoedema and can also be treated by a physiotherapist who has a special interest in lyphoedema who can perform special massage techniques and apply bandaging and support stockings.
