In 2004 I was using an Ab Lounge and felt a pop in my left groin area, it hurt for a bit the it was done for approx q month. Shortly after that my lymph nodes in my groin area on thr left sid only started to swell and over a period of 6months became larger and I started having pain that would radiate down my leg. So one night I went to the ER and was seen by the physician there who first thought was an STD or if not that then it was probably lyphoma or leukemia. The STD test all came back negative and so he said that it probably was cancerous an referred me to a specialist. After several appointments with the specialist who also thought it was cancerous, convienced me to have a biopsy of the lymph nodes. I shortly after had the surgery and was in excruciating pain which they acted like I was lying, and it took m about 3 weeks to recover. They then sent the lymph nodes to the lab and everything again came back normal. The specialist then said he didn't know why they reacted by they did, and that they would be fine and not to worry about them, that they reacted for no reason at all. The nodes that were left filled the void that was left behind, but the pain did subside. It's been almost 6 years now and I'm starting to get worried, wondering if the swelling would possiblly lead to lymphoma or if the could calcify and still possibly cause harm, if anyone has any information would help please let me know.
