I was diagnosed with primary bilateral lower leg lymphedema in 2018. I have controlled it fairly well with my custom flat knit compression stockings. Hower I in the past year I took a job that was much more sedentary, and found that my lymphedema was a little harder to control. (Puffiness in the ankle even after wearing compression).
This weekend I fell...hard. Did the splits with my bad leg going forward, hyper extended my knee, and strained my MCL.
Since then I can't get my leg swelling under control. I have started MLD treatment and have been keeping my leg wrapped to the knee. By the end of the day I can barely bend my knee. I think the lower leg wrapping might be increasing my knee and thigh swelling.
I see my lymphedema therapist on Thursday, and hopefully will be getting a pump eventually. But any other advice?
