      I have had some luck using a compression machine at night. The pain comes and goes but here lately it mostly comes!

      I found a lymphedema treatment area around me that they will do compression therapy and manual lymph drainage massages. It's just gathering the money to go now

      My primary gave me my lab results. Confirmed lymphedema. Then says, you are severely obese. Stop eating and you’ll feel better… like, dude! I’ve been starving myself. It’s obviously not working!!! I need to see a specialist!

      I got one of those sock assist things made for elderly people because with the swelling in my stomach and thigh.. there is NO way!

      Me too :(. It's the worst. They told me that I don't actually have it in my abdomen because that doesn't exist... like obviously it does !!!

      Right?? I’m going thru the same thing… my skin is tight. I can’t bend my legs. My shoes are tight. My abdomen is swollen to where I can’t put socks on . I’m so depressed and discouraged
