My heart goes out to all of you who really struggle with bad lymphoedema. Some of you are having such a rubbish time and it seems so unfair. I am lucky that mine is still mild but it is getting a bit worse and I'm wondering if any of you can help.
I developed secondary lymphoedema after surgery for cervical cancer just over two years ago. I sometimes wear compression tights but I find them so uncomfortable and I do try to do a SLD massage but often "forget" (i.e. can't really be bothered!) I've started buying firm support tights from Boots as I find those more comfortable (unsurprisingly!) in the hope that they might help but have no idea if they do or not.
I'm interested to know if lymphoedema always gets worse. At the moment it's more annoying and uncomfortable than anything else and I don't seem to be applying myself to regular SLD and compression tights. I think I'm probably looking for some of you to focus me! Any advice would be very welcome. (Sorry for the long post!)
