Tree trunk legs and arms

I know exactly how you feel. I just found out that it is called Lipoedema and it keeps all the fat cells and the body cannot get rid of it do it just stays in the arms and legs. My mum and nan had this as well. I have to give a pint of blood every 3 months to keep my iron levels down but there is no cure for Lipoedema except liposuction which we cannot get on the NHS and I for one cannot afford to go private. Just for the record it is genetic as is my haemochromatosis. I am going to my doctors in 3 weeks I will let you know what he says.

Have a good day💐
