  • Pearl Land An MD at my local hospital wound center diagnosed me with lymphedema 1 month ago. However, my determatologist insists there are at least 5 types and mine is related to a heart valve problem I have had for 7 years but did not know the exact "cardio" name for it. My heart MD says the leg and foot swelling are from taking coumadin (blood thinner) for 7 years. Any idea why it took me more than 14 months to get a doctor to evens diagnose my condition and now I am getting conflicting diagnoses? I don't know where to go next. My family physician is of little help. from Perl Land email :
