Lymphedema Chronicles
23 yr. old Left Leg Lymphedema
Authored by ebruatilla AT
Hello! I'm a 23 year-old Turkish girl. I have been suffering this illness since I was 9 years old. In the early years I really believed that I could recover. I wear my compressing garments regularly. But 14 years passed and nothing has changed. My left leg is still swollen, this makes me so nervous and effects my private life very much. I can't dare have a boyfriend or wear my swimsuit and go swimming. I can't stand the people's eyes on my leg. Everybody knows the importance of beauty in a young girl's life and this illness has converted my life into hell. I just want to know if there's a permanent treatment of this bad illness. If you know something to help me, please contact me from this e-mail address: ebruatilla AT
