Hello again. I'm looking for some more advice please. I'm still waiting for my pressure garment, but in the meantime I've given myself a 100 day exercise challenge, to get into the habit of doing some kind of physical exertion every day.
I'm getting on well, cycling or swimming or indoor rowing every day. I'm also lifting arm weights daily. However, I don't know where to find any guidance about what is or isn't ok to do with my leg and abdominal lymphoedema - eg am I ok to do sit-ups and ab crunches, or should I avoid them? is it ok to lift weights with my affected leg?
Any suggestions? should I be looking for a physio or personal trainer with experience and knowledge of lymphoedema, or am I ok just getting on with it myself?
Any thoughts gratefully received!
