  • Wedad Abdou Hello. I have just joined this site because I have lymphedema after my mastectomy surgery. I need to learn more about how to manage my lymphedema from experience of others in the community.

  • Lori Fuller My sister and I both are candidates for LVA surgery with Dr. Chen in Iowa City, IA. My sister Wendy Boylan is at stage 4 and stage 5 in her legs according to the lymphograph. (sp) The insurance company has just denied her stating it is not medically necessary and experimental. Obviously she is devastated. Dr. Chen has done a peer to peer review with the medical director and he will NOT budge on his stance. Has anyone else had any luck when the insurance company denies it? If you would like to contact me directly, that would be great or if you post here that is fine as well. Thank you for any information or advice you can give us. - See more at: http://www.lymphedemacommunity.com/members/home#sthash.dBnStrGO.dpuf
