I want to get RID of my most lymphedema affected limb. I know it's not easy living as an amputee, it has it's costs and difficulties, but I do think it would be much freer than the life with heavy, ugly, high maintenance limbs. It's not like I can walk with these anyway. Why is amputation not a good treatment? I understand that lymphedema makes the whole system malfunction. But wouldn’t it make sense, that if the most non-working area was removed it'd bring ease to the rest of the body? I'm sure this has been tried at some point for some people - does anyone know?
