I have suffered from lymphedema for a very long time, I spent 18months going backwards and forward to various places to try and find the cause of this problem. eventually I was sent to a hospital in London went through lots of tests an eventually saw the top professor in the country who looked at the notes and promptly told me I had to loose weight and there was nothing wrong with me. Yes I am overweight for my size but only by about 2 stone I am not obese. I was very disappointed with the outcome as I thought by seeing him I would at least have a positive answer, I was given support knee highs which I find extremely uncomfortable and told to go away. I would now like to try and persue this avenue again and perhaps find a more positive outcome.
