i joined this forum a few months ago and enjoy and learn lots from reading the posts. I am not a natural with 'posting' so I hope this reaches the right audience! What has surprised me in everything I have read is that nobody seems to mention the lympha-press pumps and trousers. I invested in mine earlier this year and it has been the best investment into my health that I could have made; yes it was quite expensive but it really works. My lymphoedema is in my legs and the improvement is better than I could have hoped for. If you get the opportunity to try it you should, I did a 2 week trial to make sure that it was the right thing for me and there was no pushy sales person. I hate this condition it is devastating but now I feel as though I have a bit of control back and am doing something to make sure it doesn't get worse. I got it from a company called Compression Therapy.
