I kind of want to get an idea to see how effective people find their compression.
I have never really experienced improvement through compression tights, but bandaging and pumps work, and especially rest with the leg elevated does wonders.
I am convinced that the garments option is a cheap NHS way of maintaining the status quo as far as an individuals lymphoedema is concerned. I have heard arguments that compression may constrict the flow further.
I do know however that my leg gets bigger when I don't wear my tights, but it never seems to get smaller.
Just putting this out there for healthy debate and discussion
