Lymphedema Chronicles
State of Confusion
Authored by Anonymous
Seven weeks ago, I woke with a terrible sinus infection, next day my left foot began to swell. Sat back and watched it get larger by the day, up to the knee. A couple of weeks later the left leg followed suit. It's been 7 weeks now, unable to work, seeing my feet won't fit into anything other than flip flops, on a good day.

I'm 36 years old, no past history. No answers as to where this came from or why it came on so suddenly. I've never had cancer/radiation. I have had several surgeries in the past, maybe lymph glands were damaged then? Who knows? I've had CT scans & venous doplers, everything looks normal. I've always heard the worst part is not knowing. I now know that for a fact
