After countless, wasted trips to my GP about my easily bruised and swelling legs I eventually read an article on Facebook about lipedema to which I matched every symptom! I travelled down to London and paid to see a German specialist last Saturday who diagnosed me with mild stage! She has recommended that I have water assisted lipo over in Germany and I am in talks with a surgeon over there about this, but as I have it in my arms and full leg it was cost on the region of £11k! I will happily save for this if it's going to improve the condition! Has anyone else had this procedure done? What were results like? Also I'm going to go and and see my gp to inform her I've found my own diagnosis.. And ask if there is any funding for this on the nhs... Even if it's just the compression garments! The condition is really gettin me down and I'm sick of having achey legs all the time!! Sorry to moan, but no one else understands
