Hi I thought that I would do an update on how things are going as its awhile since I posted and I have now been Living with farrow wraps for what must be 18 months maybe longer.
I was extremely let down by the north wales lymphodemia NHS clinic, who basically said farrow wraps are no good, well they where very wrong, and thankfully my own doctor was very supportive and along with our own community district nurses I was and still am supplied every three months with farrow wrap, which I wear all day every day, and they are great. Before farrow wraps my legs were 34 inch around each one, I found walking extremely difficult, and on top of this there are the side issues that come with having lymphoedema I.e. Anxiety attacks, phobia about leaving the house and panic attacks and even though the farrow wraps are doing a brilliant job at keeping my legs slim the other issues are still embedded and as bad as ever, if I had known about farrow wraps earlier how much different might my life be, are local NHS clinic were aware of them but had made the decision they were no good, how very wrong that is. I could not have the multi layer bandaging as I could not travel the 2-3 hour journey each way to the clinic, by the time I got home the bandages were falling off, and the prevented me from having freedom to move about. After seeing they results of my legs my doctor now has one or two other patient using them, that brilliant! I still have issue and other health problems to deal with but farrow wraps have given me a means of managing one of them successfully. Thanks for listening, hope you all have a great day.
