I just wondered if there was any updated medical advice for Lymphoedema patients?
Now restrictions are easing up I’m finding that I am unsure what advice I should be following. Initially it was easy as anyone who received the flu jab was vulnerable, anyone who got a letter was extremely vulnerable and should shield. They have now changed the catagories as well as the advice on social distancing so was a little lost as to what I should be doing🤷♀️
My understanding is that Lymphoedema patients are no more susceptible to catching the virus be we don’t know if the effects of Covid are any different to non Lymphoedema sufferers. From my personal experience I know that when I get an infection it can take me longer to get rid of it compared to pre cancer/ pre Lymphoedema so should I be avoiding people just in case???
