      margaret webb Any update on the bites? I am hoping you feel better.
    • Harriett Richard
      Harriett Richard Thanks for the concern, Margaret. The dr gave me two prescriptions one antibiotic the other is a cream to rub into the bites. He said to call tomorrow if no progress. But the area is no longer warm or so itchy. The lymph node under my arm appears to be...  more

      Harry Chait How old were you when the surgery was performed? was it covered by insurance or Medicare? Dr. Chen is in the Chicago. Do you live in Chicago?
    • Brenna M.
      Brenna M. Hi Harry, I was 31 when I had the first surgery. It was covered by insurance - although it was a process, which Dr. Chen's team was VERY helpful in navigating. Dr Chen is in Iowa, not Chicago. I don't live in Iowa or Chicago. I travelled for the surgery.

      Julie Maulsby Hi Brenna! I wondered how you were doing now and whether you decided to go ahead with the transfer? I’m also trying to get surgery with Dr Chen but my insurance isn’t cooperating!

      Amy Tramm Hi Brenna! Thank you for the encouraging post. I have gone from stage 1 to stage 2 and my oncologist has steered me away from surgical intervention for 10 years. I would love to hear an update! Did you decide to do the VLVT?

      Brenna M. Hi Amy - happy to chat about if you want to shoot me an email. Bmello924@gmail.com

      Im so glad I did the surgery. It stopped my leg from getting worse, but also decreased significantly in size. For many people with stage 1 or 2 it reverses the condition...  more

    Cathy Stelzleni shared Galasso Carol's blog. Hi, I posted today about the question you are asking about. I purchased a compression machine from Amazon recently. It works as good as the one i had at PT. It paid for itself after a couple of weeks of use. It is approximately $485. Good luck.

      Anna Ensley Hi Brenna, my son just had the surgery in a children’s hospital and we are told no bed rest and bandaging. I’m curious how bad your lymphedema was. My son is stage 2 I think. His feet are the worst. How long did it take for you to see results? How...  more
    • Brenna M.
      Brenna M. Hi Anna, I'm really glad to hear you son had the surgery. It's most effective the younger the person and the less advanced the stage. I was at stage 4. I think my doctor attempted 6 connections and was able to make 4. I saw results right away, and my leg...  more

      Staff Certified Lymphedema Therapist Hi Julie, I have experienced this before with some of my patients with fragile skin. Really, you just need to protect the blisters under your next bandage and make sure that your bandage isn't too loose. Cellona over these sensitive areas is...  more
