LVA Treatment for Lymphedema

I recently underwent surgical treatment for primary lymphedema in my right leg. The procedure, called LVA (Lymphaticovenous Anastomosis) was performed on April 21, 2015 and Iím already seeing a significant improvement in my swelling!

LVA graphs the lymph lines to a vein to allow the lymph fluid to drain via the vascular system.

I'm 30 years old, I was diagnosed with primary lymphedema 11 years ago in my right leg. It was manageable for about 8 years with little change...
