Hello, I have my first appointment at lymphoedema clinic next month and I am wondering what to expect.
I have swelling in both legs which has come on gradually over the years. Left calf is the worst as had a blood clot (not deep vein) twenty years ago and swelling started from then on. Left leg aches and has "heavy" feel to it. Skin is shiny and flakes a lot on shin area. Leg is discoloured. Practice Nurse at GP's has referred me to clinic following GP treating me for cellulitus in left leg. Nurse said she thought it wasn't cellulitus at all as leg not hot, but thought it could be lymphoedema. Have frightened myself by "googling" lymphoedema, so just wondering what the outlook is likely to be. Thanks.
