Pregnancy

I’ve noticed swelling in the top of my right foot and toes when I was about 19 always thought it was due to soccer (I played many years ). Swelling got worse when I got pregnant back to back , when I was 21 was my first pregnancy . Recently this year I started going to doctors to find answers I’m now 28 years old . Finally found out I had Lymphedema . Was getting wrapped by an OT and massages where I gave up & stopped going due to the fact my therapist wasn’t very educated and unable to answer questions . I would cry at night trying to keep my wrap on because my foot would just throb and throb and my therapist told me to “suck it up “ needles to say I quit going !!! I recently found out I’m expecting again and want to not give up on my Lymphedema. I’m going to search for a new doctor ASAP !! Any tips ?!!

I replied to your previous post (3 months ago) listing support/info groups in the US - did you touch base with any of them?

I’m sure some of our US based members will be along soon to help out - whereabouts do you live?

Thank you !!!!! It’s hard to find a good doctor especially someone who actually knows about Lymphedema
