I have recently seen my doctor for swelling of both feet and legs. After blood tests and CT Scan he gave me water pills to see if that did not reduce the swelling. Of course it did not help at all and told me I had Lymphedema. I have been looking at all the sites on the web and found this one to be the best. Luckily I found this site because I tripped the other day and found myself leaking fluid. I treated it with Desitin as suggested in another forum. Thank you[/b]

Hi Brink

Super welcome to the family!!

I restock my Desitin supply this morning...a store near me had buy one get one free... :)

Have you been able to see a lymph therapist yet? That will be the next step in controlling the LE.

BTW...I'm an old Florida boy..originally from West Palm...lived in a little town called Auburndale until I was about 15.

Look forward to getting to know you...please don't hesitate to post any questions or concerns.

best to you
