Member's Experience 1

After a severe episode of cellulitis in 2011 hospitalised me for two weeks, I was diagnosed with lymphoedema in my left leg, 56% bigger than my right leg.  Since then, I have experienced almost every product, therapy and surgery available. I am happy to share this information to help others.

Member's Experience 2

In 2009 after a couple of episodes of feeling like my leg was heavy and a bit swollen after exercise, I was diagnosed with secondary lymphoedema in my left leg, it was termed as ‘mild’ and I’d already beaten cervical cancer, how hard could it be?

Member's Experience 3

Being asked to share my experiences isn’t something I’ve had issues doing throughout the years. Knowing what to write is hard to do. It’s hard enough trying to explain to someone verbally how this condition has shaped my life.

 

Member's Experience 4

After 5 years of struggling physically combining Lymphoedema and work, with bad some nights getting upstairs after work I took the decision (whilst in hospital on a drip with cellulitis) to take medical retirement from work.

Member's Experience 5

The purpose of this article is not to make you feel sympathy for what I have been through with diagnosis, surgery, and radiation. Rather, it is to pass on the story that brought me to a place of learning about post breast surgery needs, lymphedema, some support structures, knowledge, and guidance that worked exceptionally well for me.

Member's Experience 6

I’m happy to share the highs and lows of my experience over the past ten years, which seem to resonate with other member stories on Matt’s brilliant site.  I just want to do what I can in some small way to help others.

Member's Experience 7

A warm hello from “Hessen” Germany. My name is Jürgen Jakob (57) married, two children, working and suffering from primary lymphoedema in both legs.

I am the middle of three children, my eldest brother did not inherit lymphoedema, but we other two did.

Member's Experience 8

In March 2016, nine years after being treated for cervical cancer, I noticed swelling in my left ankle, and within a week my entire leg was swollen. Little did I know how my life would change.
