I've recently been prescribed with oestrogen only HRT in the form of a patch. According to my FB HRT group the best place to apply the patch is below the waist on the buttocks/hip/abdomen/thigh.
However, I have some mild swelling due to lymphoedema in these areas on one side and I know from scans that I have compromised lymph flow on the other side.
Does anyone here with lymphoedema from below the waist to the thigh use oestrogen patches? If so I'd be interested to hear your experiences.
