Question Anyone had swollen lymph nodes for years?

Hello. I was diagnosed with Lyme in 2004 and used to post here. Haven't posted in a long time, but I have a question I hope someone can help with.

I was treated with antibiotics for a couple of years and did well. My concern is that I've had swollen lymph nodes for years and was wondering if anyone else has. I have two in my groin (one on each side), one in my right elboe and also behind both knees. The groin nodes have been there for at least four years. The others at least two but not sure.

I asked my LLMD several years ago before I discovered the elbow and knees. He didn't seem concerned. Asked my family dr and he doesn't seem concerned either. Will see my LLMD again in a few days. Obviously will start meds again and hope for the best.

Anyone have a similar experience? Thanks!!

Re: Anyone had swollen lymph nodes for years?

Some say that the huge lymph nodes are from Bartonella infection. Have you talked to your doctor about Bart?

Pre treatment, I had HUGE lymph nodes also. In groin and neck. I do believe they are holding in infectiion.

Went away with treatment.

I continued to have swollen lymph nodes for a few months after treatment - in my neck and all the way down the back of my legs. My doctors didn't seem concerned either and eventually they went away!

I dont have swollen nodes in those areas. I have lumps under my arms that are painful. No doctors seem too concerned.
