My son has primary lymphedema in his right leg, stage 2 and it started about 5 years ago. He had a LVA surgery about 5 months ago. The surgeon made 2 connections at the ankle and one below the knee. Swelling in the foot has decreased but the lower leg and thigh are the same or may have even become worse. He wears compression socks and also bandages.
One problem that has started is that within half an hour or so of bandaging, his ankle starts hurting at the spot of the scar and gets so bad that he has to remove the bandage. Because of this his leg is getting worse and swelling up again.
Any ideas on what to do? Has any one experienced a similar problem?
