Hello, I have Lymphoedema
in both my legs, my right leg is alot worse than my left one.
starts all the way from groin to feet, but not affecting my bum cheeks.
The reason I am writing this is because I need some advise. currently on the back of my right leg below my bottom on my thigh I have a leakage. Usually leakages for me are easy to manage but this is proven very difficult.
the concerned area of leakage seems to be a cluster of small spots that have opened up and are now leaking uncontrollably.
The leaking has now been going on for; today being the 11th day.
i have used absorbent pads and all sorts but within 45 mins they are saturated. It is leaking so, so much. and I end up changing the the dressing every four hours ( that's if my partner is here to help me'
because of the location of the leakage I am constantly sat on top of it.
the area in concern is almost like a strip, bending around my thigh and ending up a few inches below my bottom.
i have garments that cover both legs from just below my chest and ending just below my knee's, I have not been using these as I only have 2 pairs and as I said before, within 45 minutes the dressing are saturated.
before changing the dressings my partner cleans the area and applies creams but it just is not getting any better at all! I am stuck!
SO.. does anyone have any advise, tips, on what i can do to help stop this leakage!?
do you think i should wear my stockings which would apply pressure to the area?
please help me guy'!
