Hi all, I'm new to the board today. I'm 33 years old and recently diagnosed with lower limb lymphodema following cervical cancer surgery & radiation last year. I have been advised to wear compression tights grade 2, and will persevere with them through the summer. However we are off to India to peruse surrogacy on Monday and the weather is going to be extreme (40C +). I feel really hard changed about the whole illness and now that I have to wear compression tights, I get quite upset. Does any one have any experience of sun holidays and being able to take off the compression tights to feel the sun and Sand on your feet without your legs swelling? Any advice much appreciated...
