  • 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!!

  • Janice G Hello everyone. I'm Janice. I have lymphedema in my legs. I keep it well controlled with MLD, pumping and wrapping nightly. I have recently seen a surgeon about getting the lymphnode transfer surgery. Has anyone here had it? Tips, ideas???

  • Kim Dorz Hi, wondering if anyone can provide some help and/or insight.  I work in an acute care hospital.  Some of out PTs want to know about using tubigrip on persons having just undergone total knee replacement.  The goal would be to reduce post surgery edema.  Any thoughts, info, or research you can share?  Thank you, in advance.
