Hi all! I'm new to this board. I have primary lymphedema in my right leg that began in puberty. Here in the US, I've found that doctors are mostly clueless about the condition. I've been told it's only an extra layer of fat to it's just something I have to learn to live with.
Well today, FINALLY, after 22 years, my insurance has approved therapy because it is affecting my mobility greatly. I'm just scared of therapy. I've no idea what to expect. Is it painful? What is it like wearing compression bandages all the time? Tips to stay comfortable? I feel like a newborn. I'm excited to finally be treated, but scared to enter the unknown.
