hospitalised 4 times 2012 with breathing probs. Legs/feet/ ankles were so swollen Oct.Nov could not walk, wear shoes or leave house. Lymph clinic refuse bandaging in case fluid goes to lungs or heart. intravenus diuretics in Dec in hosp.lost 21 litres fluid in 10 days(YES 21 LITRES) Fluid has returned, legs just as bad. Consultant (lung) said dont know anything abt lymphodema cannot comment when I asked his opinion abt bandaging. Any suggestions please. I will be housebound soon.
