i suffer from lymphedema in my right leg for 11 years, its so painful and despite wearing support stockings my leg has gotten worse. my district nurse tells me to just 'pull my stocking up' after i told her its constantly falling down, i also suffer with leg ulcers on my left leg and again these have become worse despite being in compression bandages. The pain is unbearable. i have been having tests & scans to see what's causing my stomach to be so big and as yet nothing has been revealed to be causing this which is a good thing in one sense but then again if something shown up as causing the swelling at least the doctors could have something to work on at helping me.
i have heard that lymphedema can go in the stomach & as i hardly know anything about lymphedema despite suffering for so many years with it, any information anyone can give me would be greatly appreciated.
