The Pain Of Lymphedema
I have a newsreel on lymphedema on my blog that has the current news on lymphedema,which I have.A few days ago, from the Huffington Post,I read a ridiculous statement by a therapist who stated that lyphedema is not painful.Uh,hello?.....I beg to differ. Here is a response to her letter by a professional that decided to politely set her straight! Pain of Lymphedema http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/11/29/AR2010112904882.html Lymphedema is often times painful, as I can attest. Please ignore, and don't pass on remarks to any of your friends that have lymphedema that your read that it is not painful just because some arrogant snot that does not have a clue said so!( I have had people tell me ," But I read that it is not that painful." .......and I think, "Oh really, did you lay awake til the early hours of the morning with your legs hurting
so bad that you could not sleep?I did.
This picture was taken before diagnosis . All I knew was something was terribly wrong!

My Blog List
Here is my article link on holiday stress on hubpages.
Thank you all for your prayers! My daughter is better. She returned to the surgeon today, and the pathology report from the removed thyroid showed no malignancy. The choking and pain she is experiencing is sometimes an unfortunate part of the thyroidectomy and the accompanying swelling from the procedure.The doctor told her not to go back to her classes until after Thanksgiving, no lifting,housework, or streneous activity.
I made some spanish rice , refried beans, and spinach salad with bacon /ranch dressing. She ate very carefully in tiny bites and actually even managed the salad. Now she is on the sofa watching HGTV........instead of sleeping 12 hours a day. the doc said the excessive sleepiness is from the double whammy of the surgery and the synthroid medication she is taking. She told me that she will be careful and follow the doc's instructions after I go. Well,she better~~~~Jackie~~~~!
By the way,I found a new blog community today, and it seems super. Check it out! frogblog!
