  • Sue Kenyon How do you know the amount of compression you need, I've just had a PT tell me I need to up my compression to 30-40 and use a flat stocking. I was in 20-30 Median sheer and comfort thigh high stockings. I just had a lymph node transfer and a bypass if that matters in the compression choice. I tried the Median forte in 30-40, and I can't keep them from rolling down my thigh and they're like impossible to put on. I worked up quite a sweat!!

  • Allie C I haven't posted in a while, but I have some new post up on the blog. My favorite are these leggings, which I'm living in during quarantine. And bonus they are $14! Check them out. I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy. xo-Allie https://lovinglifewithlymphedema.blogspot.com/2020/02/loving-life-in-tie-dye.html

  • Patricia Korn I just joined. I had bladder cancer surgery and a complete hysterectomy with 49 lymph nodes removed in April 2019. The result is LE in both legs. I'm frustrated in finding information about LE and looking for practical tips in dealing with it on a day-to-day basis.
