Update from Loretta

imageI’m doing well I keep saying I owe you an update but time flies by! I was at my therapist yesterday and she measured me and I am smaller than the last which was in September. Overall much smaller than before the surgery.😊My thigh is “normal ” but where he implanted the nodes in my calf is a little bigger. You would have to look hard at my leg to see the difference.
I stopped wearing a tribute at night and decreased my stocking compression to a class 1 from a 3, BUT I still wear my ready wrap on top of the stocking.
The end of January I am scheduled for my one year MRA and beginning of February a Lymphocintigraphy, excited to see how my babies are performing!! I see my surgeon after the testing.
Hopefully he will tell me to get rid of the wrap and start with a higher compression stocking to make up for the loss of the wrap.
All in all the surgery seems to be working for me and hopefully I continue to see results.
You can share this on your site and if anyone would like to contact me I would be happy to speak to them.

Walking the Brooklyn Bridge

Walking the Brooklyn Bridge

I was invited by the Lymphatic Education and Research Network to write a guest post on the importance of education and research for Lymphedema and the funds that are needed  to support their goals. On September 14th there will be a sponsored walk across the Brooklyn Bridge which is hoping to raise $60,000.
