Hi there,
Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Hoellering and pleased to help you.
Reactive lmyph nodes are swollen ones, reacting to inflammation or bacterial or viral infection. The portal region is in the liver area.
If you were in hospital because of any abdominal condition, reactive lymph nodes are mostly normal.
I wish you a soon recovery!
