I have been diagnosed and treated for Lymphodema for 15 years and use compression stockings throughout this time. I have primary lymphedema that went undiagnosed for so many years. Both legs are affected but the right leg is the worst. For the last year I have suffered from leg ulcers in the right leg. Initially one nasty ulcer near the ankle on the rear of the leg. I have been in 4 layer bandaging on this leg since June 2012. Now two more ulcers have developed on the front of the leg for no apparent reason. Dermatology at my local hospital are confounded and now I am waiting to see a cardio vascular surgeon next week on 30 May. Has anyone else suffered anything similar?
