Hi there, this is my first post here and already I need some advice.
I have Lymphadema and Chronic Venous Insufficiency in both my legs, I wear copression garments level III on my left leg and level II on the right one daily.
I am looking for a career change and recently I have found a wonderful volunteering opportunity in Madang in Papua New Guinea and applied immediately. The problem is Papua New Guinea has hot and humid tropical climate, which is the worst what can be for swelling.
So my question is: has any of you lived/been on holidays in a tropical country and how have you coped with the (increased) swelling there? Do you think it is manageable (and manageable for a year every day)?
The work would be mainly in air conditioned office and the accomodation would be air conditioned as well, but I would need to travel to and fro and also spending a year avoiding any outdoors and just hiding in the office/apartment doesn't seem like a very appealing option...
This is a really good opportunity and great adventure, but I wouldn't like to jeopardise my health (too much)...
And more generally, what climate/countries do you think are the best for living with our condition?
