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.
Well,ho,ho,ho, and Merry Christmas to me! I bought myself a recliner yesterday. It's my Christmas gift from me,to me! I have needed one for so long.I have lymphedema ,mostly in both legs. I am supposed to sit with both legs up as much as possible when seated. I could afford one, so I spent $20.00 on a small ottomon instead.
Yesterday, I went to a local chain furniture store to buy my daughter (who lives with me) a new mattress for her main Christmas gift. Her other one was a goner.
While there,the saleslady (a friend of my daughter)told me that she had the recliner chair that I had previously almost bought back in stock. Additionally,it was on sale,at the very low price of $200.00! So I dipped into my emergency fund and bought it right then and there. I am usually not so impulsive, but I need it and loved the sage/taupe color. So now, I'm sitting in a recliner with my legs way up, and feeling great. Ho,ho,ho!Compare one of my bad days(mostly) with one of my good days. Good days take a lot of sitting, with elevated legs. I have to wear compression hose every day. You can seee why I am excited about something as mundane as a recliner!!!!!You can also understand why spending time on the computer helps me pass the time.~~~~~Jackie~~~~~~
