Love is usually in the air at the Lipedema Patient Roundtable, but extra doses were served up with the addition of Kathleen Lisson, CLT, to the panel as a special Valentine’s guest. As one of the authors of the Standard of Care for Lipedema in the United States, she adeptly answered questions from the audience, including how to best deal with pain, what to look for when considering surgery, and even led the group in a beautiful meditation to end the program.
Attendees were interested in the Lympha Press Optimal Plus, and panelists encouraged that, when it comes to lipedema, more than a leg sleeve is the “optimal” garment choice. Several of the anchors are regular users of the Lympha Pants and Cara Cruz has the upper extremity garment, which came in handy for healing after her recent arm surgery.
Excitement is building for the upcoming Fat Disorders Resource Society (FDRS) Conference in April and next month is Lymphedema Awareness Month, so the Roundtable will host a representative from the Lymphatic Education and Research Network (LE&RN). In the meantime, a reminder to “never turn your back on your self” underscored the value of knowing our worth, fueling all who logged on with an extra helping of encouragement.
