I have been dignosed with lyphodema only for a year, after a very bad incident of cellulitis which I was hospitalised. I was lucky enough offered private appointment through my work, who dignosed with lyphodema in both of my legs. I was given a pair of stockings told too loose weight, exercise and any problems see my gp. The last few months I have had alot swelling & in pain went too see my gp who told me same thing , I asked about seeing lyphodema nurse I was told only if I was reconvening from cancer. I live in hull if anyone can offer any help please. I only just found this page a few days ago alread, Found it very helpful, as I have felt very alone & upset about my condition.
