Not sure I am in the right forum or even doing this post correctly. I have been given the chance to purchase(through insurance)the Flexitouch (lower extremity), I see posts from two years ago, but not more recent ones, anybody out there been on this machine on a regular basis? My lymphedema is contained to an upper thigh and left pelvic side, so I do have some concerns of what I have heard could be possible side effects by using a pump. I understand that the flexitouch is different from the traditional leg pumps but still would like to hear people's(besides the people interviewed on Flexitouch's webpage) experiences.

Hey Omi

I keep hoping that someone who has actually used the Flexi will respond as I know that quite number of our members have.

I wanted to see what it was like so I gave it a test run, and it was great. With my severe abdominal fluid and lung fluid there just is no way I could safely use any type of compression. If I could, it most likely would be the Flexi.

BTW....Flexi people did not offer to nor have they ever suggested any renumeration for those two Flexi pages I did so they really are my honest personal opinion. LOL...I find one of the freedoms of having this site is that I can say what ever I feel or think and no one can tell me to go home :)

Anyway, hang in there and let's see if someone will speak up.

My best to you :!:
