Venous thrombosis: Swelling in pelvis and legs depends on the response to hysterectomy where if procedure was for tumor a pelvic node dissection was probably performed. Here there is a possibility of iliac and hypogastric vein thrombosis leading to extremity edema as well as aching from obturator and pelvic femoral nerve irritation
