I just have to share this photo of my latest treatment. I am still battling lymphoedema and this week the OT zipped me into giant trousers, then pumped them up with air. They are heavy duty massage trousers for compressing my legs in an attempt to move the lymph fluid along.
I have also graduated to stiffer stronger stockings. On my left side where I had radiation therapy on a tumour in my lymph last year, now it seems to be blocking the flow of lymph fluid and my thigh is swollen. If we can resolve this I’m hoping that I will be more comfortable.
Meanwhile Mum is turning 90 and we are celebrating!
