  • Larry Witanowski   Hi, great to have an online community to help with finding information about lymphedema and its treatment, which can be frustrating to find online.  I like this combination of patients and therapists, and the ability to read other peoples experiences in what can be a frustrating and lengthy battle to gain control of a long term problem.  My own problems started after a drawn out course of infection with a gastrointestinal virus that took way longer than the usual 4-7 days that most people experience.  After 8 weeks of dealing with the symptoms of the viral infection, I started to have swelling in my feet and lower extremities.  It took months for my GI tract to get back to its former state of health, and my body payed a hard price in loss of muscle mass, weakness, severe fatigue, and additional symptoms of poor nutrition.  Now, about 8 months later, I am on the mend, and working with my lymphedema massage therapist to improve the function of my lower extremities.
