I have lymphoedema in both legs. I am soon going into hospital to have a replacement knee operation and wondering if anyone has had a similar op and if there were any problems after surgery?
Hopefully your orthopaedic surgeon is liaising with your lymphoedema clinic? If you don’t have them already, you will need compression wraps, rather than your usual garments, to cope with the post-op oedema.
Do you know if you are having spinal anaesthetic? Seems to be accepted practice now. It does improve recovery.
Take all the advice they give you - & do the exercises!
