Hey everyone. I was GabbiD but I changed my account to GabbiD44 because my previous account was linked through my FB. With the latest data breach I discontinued any account that was linked to my FB.
Anyway, I have had lipoedema in my legs(mostly left, but definitely both) for several years but was only diagnosed this past fall. I did wraping for 3 weeks and am now in custom socks to my knee. I am carrying 100lbs in extra weight and am hopimg to work on that next, now that I can wear sneakers. I mostly do recumbent biking and some walking for exercise, as I can see both benefits and aggravation to my legs with walking. I have a sedentary office job. So I try to keep up with my leg exercises at my desk but its easy to forget and then I can feel my leg pushing agaisnt my stocking.
I have realky appreciated the insights of this group. I am currently working on finding summer wear that will be managable with my heavy stockings and am trying not.to freak out about traveling this summer. Again thanks to you all!
