First appointment

I went,t to my first appointment at clinic for Lymphoedema. The nurse was exstremely nice. She assured me to start taking my water tablet again. She said if I only had lmphodede I wouldn't take but having high blood pressure it would help me.she put bandages in my legs but I she don't want to put too much compression on as have lot of pain n my legs now. She has meauredc me for zip up support socks to my knees. Has anyone had these. I have never heard of these. Thank you

  • The zippered compression garments are easy to put on, and should be very comfortable.

  • Thankyou very much

  • Hi hope you are not struggling to much with bandaging can be uncomfortable but makes such a difference long term.Have always had full length garments and although took a long time to get used to wearing them helped reduce the fluid in my leg.The specialist nurses are a godsend for both treatment and support Take care xxx

  • I'm sure it'll take time to get used to them, hope they help & you get some relief x
