As a lot of us already know, the lymphatic system is a very important part of our body, so much so that it’s commonly referred to as “our second circulatory system.” The lymphatic system acts as a sort of bath for our cells, cleaning them and carrying the “cellular sewage” away from the tissues and into the blood, where it’s then delivered to either the liver or the kidneys for detoxification.

(“Cellular sewage” is made up of byproducts from bodily processes, over-the-counter and prescription drugs, illicit drugs, cigarette toxins, airborne pollutants, food additives, pesticides, and other toxins.)

  1. I would like to talk to anyone that has had this lymph node transfer surgery. I’m 50, male, lymphadema for about 7 years in left leg from toe to groin. I’ve done the MLDrainage, I wear compression hose and will wrap myself from time to time to try to squeeze down so that I can wear ‘normal’ pants to an event or something. But after wrapping and then going back to compression my swelling is back in a matter of 2 days. I’ve only recently read of this transfer surgery and would like to talk to someone with experience about it? 615-678-3936 Nathan Dunn.

    • Hi Nathan… Are you in America??? If so there are quite a few drs who are doing this surgery there now… I suggest making an appointment for an assessment as everyone is different in wether they are suited to surgery.. My blog has peoples stories but as you see it is a slow process to see results… Having a few weeks of complex bandaging and then the correct flat knit compression garments may help to to keep your leg at a good size…
