Has anyone heard of opiate intrathecal induced lymphedema? I have a pain pump and recently heard about this. I have lymphedema and am wondering if this is the cause of it.
Lymphedema : Has anyone heard of opiate intrathecal... - LSN
Yes, I’m in the US. My family doctor doesn’t know squat about lymphedema. In fact I had to tell her I was afraid I had lymphedema. She said ok and put me into treatment. I think my pump doctor knows even less.
Can you recommend a good physician who could help me figure out anything about this? I’ve been wearing wraps for two years and have a massage pump for my legs. But if it is only edema, I want to know if the treatment is different!
