Hello, I have secondary lymphoedema in my arm and have had 6 attacks of cellulitis in the last 2 years resulting in ten days in hospital in October having I've clindamycin. I also have Crohnns disease for which I take steroids and which is causing me some grief at the moment. My daughter has asked me to go with her and the grandchildren on a villa holiday in South Spain and while appreciating her offer I would really like just to amble over to a hotel in France which I can drive to. Driving means I can take any toilet breaks without stress and if I do get another really nasty bout of cellulitis I can travel back. She thinks I am becoming trapped by my health issues - I have had a few in the last ten years with cancer and hip and spinal surgery but the two current active ones have left me a little worn out. I would welcome anyone's advice or comments. I am 63 and was forced to retire on health grounds, love my family etc but the thought of car, plane, car is just daunting for me at the moment. Carolo
