Hello! I have mild lymphoedema (result of surgery for cervical cancer) and had my first appointment with a lovely specialist nurse a couple of days ago. She showed my MLD and has ordered compression tights but was a bit concerned about my exercise regime. I have recently started going to the gym and am training to do a 100 km sponsored bike ride in May. She is worried that the ride is too far and that I may swell up and not go down again!
I've never taken much exercise before and have been really enjoying it. I'm now worried about overdoing it without realising it and feel almost scared to go to the gym today. Such a shame because I've been bouncing in there. On Tuesday I did a 10 mile bike ride and then a gym workout and I felt great!
Has anyone got any advice on recreational exercise?
