Lymphedema People is an anchor

Postby blubrdfrend » Thu Apr 11, 2013 1:50 pm

Today I am giving thanks for Lymphedema People. I live near a very small town. I was a county criminal court clerk in a nearby city of 25, 000. I am now retired. Until I found this site, I had never spoken to or seen another person with lymphedema. I have learned so much and been uplifted so many times by you, the members of this site. Knowing that someone understands the mental and physical problems of lymphedema is a comfort. It was wonderful to find so much information in one place. The information and forums on this site have been invaluable to me.

Thanks you so much for your kind words, Betty.

Being a part of the family here and being able to reach out to help other lymphers like myself is a true blessing and is one reason I have been able to continue to keep going throughout these years of battling lymphedema, lymphoma, cellulitis, pain and the list that goes with LE.

Pat,

I was glad to see that you recently posted. How are you doing? In a couple of weeks I have an appointment with the Chief of Vascular Service. He is from a very well respected hospital. My legs are getting bigger plus I have painful varicose veins. Is there anything new in the treatment of lymphedema? Sometimes I just can't stand it.
