  • Peggy Lipman I occasionally have clients that have a fibrotic area across there body under their belly button ... I can get them out eventually but it takes several sessions... does anyone know of a quick method to get rid of those areas?

  • Brenna M. Hi sorry for my delay responding! Immediately after the surgery, the swelling in my leg went down significantly all over and stayed down while I was still wearing bandages (the first 3ish months).  Now that I've gone back to a compression garment and normal routine, my leg will still swell, but not as much, and also decreases much faster and responds to bandages and pump. I'm going back for another surgery in March. I'm going to do liposuction in the leg from thigh to calf to help the fluid pass easier through the tissues (by removing the hardened and fattier tissues from the disease), and to even out the swelling.  Has anyone on here tried liposuction to help or know someone who has? Thanks!

  • Anna Ensley Has anyone on here had lyohedema surgery? (Lymphovenous anastomoses). I’m wondering what your post-surgery plan was. Did you have bed rest? Did you do stretch bandages for a few weeks? Or let it be without wraps to keep things flowing? Did you have a good result? How many connections did they make? My son just had the surgery, but they don’t do many of them at the children’s hospital where he is and I want to make sure we do the right post surgery care when I take him home. His biggest issue is his feet.
