I just got back from the hospital from surgury yesterday, what was thought to be a hernia that had twisted and had to be removed turned out to be a huge necrotic Lymph node. They removed the whole thing and sent it to pathology to check for cancer. I await the answer.
My question for the group, is it common for Autoimmune to attack a lymph node so bad it forces it to die. I mean this thing hurt so bad. I know your neck Lymph nodes can swell, but has anyone had one so bad that it had to be surgically removed?
It could be the vasculitis that did it, or sjgrins, or something. I wonder if It could have been saved, they didn't take the chance, once they saw how nacrotic it was they wanted it over at pathology. Do Nacrotic Lymph get better with rest, or is it by then too late.
Not sure if anyone has any experience with any crazy lymphs that go wild. Boy am I sore... Dave..
