I wanted to leave you a little video message to prove that 1) I’m a real person, and 2) that I’m dedicated to this blog and to helping people with lymphedema feel less alone. I’m sorry that I kind of ramble a lot.. this was filmed on a Sunday morning (like an hour before this was posted!), and I didn’t have any written notes about what I wanted to say. This is from the heart, so be kind! :)
Thanks for sharing your feelings! I share a lot of them (primary lymphedema in my left leg).
I will keep an eye on your website!
Thanks, Eline! You be well, too :)
Great blog! I learned about lymphedema through someone very close to me, and think it’s great that you’re doing this blog! Do you know if any particular medical schools or hospitals are better known for lymphatic research and treatment than others?
You know, I really am not sure. Lymphedema and lymphatic therapy don’t seem to be as much of a priority in the medical community, even though there are so many people (especially women who have undergone breast cancer treatment) that have it.
There was a hospital near my home that had a lymphedema center (much to my surprise!) — the best thing to do is to just get on the internet and do some research! You’re bound to find one near you.
I’m impressed, I need to say. Really hardly ever do I encounter a blog that’s each educative and entertaining, and let me let you know, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is excellent; the difficulty is something that not sufficient individuals are talking intelligently about. I am very blissful that I stumbled across this in my search for one thing relating to this.
This really answered my problem, thank you!
Nice blog. we all feel the same, but there is a big difference, you can’t wear that pair of leggings that is cut of over the ankle, some can’t wear leggings. some legs hurt, some legs leak.
