HI all! My name is Erika, however it should be, "Frustrated in the US!" I had a recent , pretty severe bout with lymphoedema at the end of January 2019 and ended about 3 weeks later in February 2019. The problem I have been having since then is that when I am sitting for any length of time, I cannot stand without severe pain in both knees. The same holds true when I wake up in the morning, I have to hold onto the walls so I don't fall down due to my knee pain. This only started after the swelling was pretty much gone. To this day, March 13, 2019, these same symptoms are still happening. I'm unsure of what to do...I saw a Vascular Surgeon and all I was told is that I have a combination of Venous Insufficiency and Lymphoedema and that the only thing that can be done is compression treatment. (Lasix would work but the swelling would automatically return once the medicine was stopped.) Has anyone experienced this? If so, what did you do? I'm beginning to think I have bilateral knee problems that coincidentally occurred with the venous insufficiency and lymphoedema. Any information would be greatly appreciated!!!! My apologies for the long post, I'm just frustrated and need advice or help!!!
