During the years before her condition had a name, she sometimes thought she was crazy. “I was walking, exercising, and yet my legs were painful and getting bigger.” When finally diagnosed in 2016, she said to herself, “I need to keep this at bay because I want to have a life.”
Her son did some searching and discovered pneumatic compression, but when she heard about Lympha Press at the Lipedema Patient Roundtable, she reached out for help. Soon connected with her local compression therapy consultant, she found Lympha Press easy to work with and her new pump and Lympha Pants so easy to use: “I just slide inside and push the button. It’s super easy.” Best of all? It’s working to help her stay on top of her lymphedema and lipedema so she can live the life she wants to live.
