I had an enlarged lymph node removed from my neck on August 30. It was not cancerous, but incredibly painful. I found out after the surgery the lymph node was on a bundle of nerves on my carotid artery which is what was causing most of the pain. I healed fine; the only issue I had was the reaction I had to antibiotics after surgery. This past week another lymph node has become enlarged. It is more painful than the last one and in the same general area. I have swelling and tenderness all along my jaw line on the left side. I am beginning to have difficulty swallowing. It feels like a rotten tooth in my neck,
The reason why I am here is because after my surgery both my primary doctor and the surgeon said I am healthy and did nothing further to find out why this happened. I asked repeatedly to be tested for auto-immune diseases. My mother has lupus. I have been treated for thyroid problems in the past, but my new primary will not treat it. I am at my wit's end. I am always run down and tired, and my whole body aches both before and after surgery. I am just looking for some ideas or advice as I feel totally abadoned by my doctors.
Thank you so much.
