Today is five weeks after surgery and generally I feel fine, but I do have some pain in the lower groin which is not constant but depends on my level of activity. The pain ison the extreme left and right side, could this be related to lymph nodes, has anybody experienced this.

After my surgery there was little pain but I lost some lateral movement from my right leg. If I laid on my back in bed and dropped my left leg to the floor over the bed I could just using my leg muscles pick the leg up and move it back onto the bed. I could not do the same on the right side. I had to strain to get it to move slightly inward and it would cause some little pain. I could easily move it outward without issue. My steady walking regimin got rid of all these issues. I was never limited while walking, just a slight nagging pain during the first month. All is well now. The explaination I got was that there is a lot of swelling after surgery, and my nerves passing by the surgical area may have been affected. I posted it here when it happened and noone had duplicated this but I now can see why. Some doctors, as in Bob's case are really cautious about walking. My doctors just said to do what feels OK and it was OK to walk as far as I did as long as the walking did not cause any pain. Can you exercise OK? If so walking will probably work in your favor. At this point you shouldn't be running any risks while walking.
