I have secondary lymphoedema of thighs and groin following surgery last year. It is currently mild and I am trying to find out about LVA before it progresses any further. Has anyone got any recommendations or tips? I have tried to find out about NHS funding (I realise that this is a very slim chance) and wondered if anyone else had managed it or even attempted it? My GP is supportive but I need a. consultant to do this on my behalf but I only see nurses for my condition? Also if paying privately does anyone have any recommendations who I should see (I've been in touch with oxford, Anne dancey, Manchester and marsden) in terms of success rates and price?
I really can't believe that more isn't readily available on the NHS when you consider how much I am going to cost the NHS over a lifetime in compression, nurse hours, antibiotics etc
Thanks in advance!
