Hello, I've recently been diagnosed with lymphoedema in both legs and can't exercise as I'm waiting for a total knee replacement so if anyone has any suggestions I'd be grateful. Also I've heard that they wont operate with my condition, is this true? I hope not as am having to use a walking stick now and can't walk or stand for more than about 15-20 mins. before having to sit down because of the pains. I've got Graves Disease as well and wonder if it could be the cause of the lymphoedema? I'm not getting much info. or help from the doctors as to self help or treatment and have just been given compression stockings and moisturisers for the dryness of my skin.
I hope someone has some suggestions.
All the best.
