Visitor Comments: I was looking online for vascular surgeons because my boyfriend has severe lymphadema in both legs and his pcp seems to know nothing about how to help. Your story sounds a lot like his does, he is primarily homebound now and no one here in grand rapids, michigan seems to know how to help him. Your story gives me hope that we might be able to get him some help. He gets recurring cellulitus in both of his legs due to the lymphadema so i understand your hospital frustrations. I pray that we can find him the help he needs. Thank you for your story amy :-)

Visitor Comments: :Hi I have enjoyed your blog. Well done on the weight loss and you look fab. I have been diagnosed with lymphodema in my legs and now I have an area on my tummy overhang which is leaking quite a lot. I have compression on my legs but I am so down about the stomach part. I need weight loss surgery but not any plans in place as of yet. )

Visitor Comments: Hi Amy, I just finished viewing your website and I'm tearing up because so many of your early experiences with the medical profession sounded familiar to me. Like you my doctors had always told me that my 100 lb. weight gain every decade(I'm now in my mid 50's & weigh somewhere near 500 lbs)was basically my fault (i.e. not enough exercise, poor eating habits, etc.) and over a half dozen doctors dismissed my disfigured thighs and legs as fluid retention. In March of this year, I finally heard from my oncologist (I now have breast cancer) that I have lymphedema & that it's treatable. Unfortunately, while waiting to see a therapist, I am now unable to walk at all but I have renewed hope that proper treatment CAN help me. Thank you for sharing your story...it has given me hope again.
