You can get Lymphodeama after surgery but this will have to be confirmed with your consultant, GP or MacMillian Lymphodeama Specalist.

Re: lymphedema in lower leg

I have had lymphdema in both ankles for 30yrs and still trying to come to terms with it.
Unfortunately it will never go away unless you wear compression garments see a L/O therapist for advice do not have blood pressure taken on the affected limb and no injections
