Hi, I have had secondary le for coming up on 12 months, finally got to le clinic in January, and have my first compression bandages the week after next.
I have le of the lower legs, both legs, with a tendency to cellulitis and lymphoerrea.
I have been 'given' made to measure pop-socks (1 pair) which I wore for the first time yesterday - legs have been too sore for them till now, today too and they felt very comfortable (once I got them on - that was a struggle!) except for the tops, which I had to pull up a few times during the day - and had to keep checking that the blood was still flowing as it felt as if they were cutting off my circulation, and my legs felt almost bruised when I placed my fingers in to pull them up.
Is this normal? or should I worry?
