After a year of chasing a diagnosis for my swollen calf/ foot I have finally been diagnosed with lympphadema. Devastated. I am 50 never had this problem before - except when pregnant and the Dr says it is hereditary? How can that be? She also says stage 2 but the swelling mostly goes away after a nights sleep so does that mean she was wrong ? So confused!
Do you have to wear compression tights also? And does it matter if they are half or full leg? Finding it all very hard right now.
