Hi, my friend is 70 and had lymphodema in both legs , she had gel from doctor but that's it , no support . She is in pain, can't stand to cook, doesn't go out at all ! Trapped in her own flat. Her legs are so heavy she struggles to get out of her chair and now doesn't go to bed , sleeps in chair.
Bottom of leg, red and hot and lumpy , top of her legs get cold. Doc says it's her circulation ! Well, obviously but he just leaves it at that !
I've been reading about massage and compression and nurses who come out online , she needs help to try and get a better chance of life .
Any advice ? Wish I could put a photo up of her legs : (
I live in Southport, Merseyside. Not a relative which makes it hard to speak to doctors.
