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.
I was diagnosed with lymphedema in both legs in November 2009 after five days in the hospital via an emergency room admittance. There is no cure. Treatment helps, but unless God does it,it will never go away. You must live with it as best you can. A good attitude is crucial! I have wrriten several articles about my story. You can click on them below to learn more about my story.
I sometimes can wake up to almost normal looking legs. It really helps me to see my normal appearing legs to remind myself that my legs and feet are not fat,just full of lymph fluid. It is a nummer to look at my ugly legs, and a boost to see this!
