  • Glad to hear you are doing well. Be patient as it does take time. I am at week 6 post op and my leg still feels uncomfortable usually when lying down. Worst is in evening. Nothing unbearablelse. It takes a while to recuperate. Give yourself the time you need to fully recover. Like you I'm pleased with the new shape. Glad your recovery is going well. Take care.

  • Hi Lynne-byn I am doing well and recouping pretty good. I will say that the road to recovery from SAPL surgery is a process. While you can begin resuming your life in a few weeks ofter surgery, the recovery pricess is longer and one must be patient. I am very happy with the results. I'm at 8 weeks now and just saw my pt. My leg looks awesome and beginning to feel more like mine again. Xoxo

    I have had primary lymphoedema for the past 30 years and would dearly love to try liposuction. I wonder if you would be happy to pass on the consultants details please ?

    Many thanks ☺
