SEVERE lymphedema- HELP!

Someone please help me because the doctors are having no luck. I had jaw surgery in November 2011, and breast implant surgery in March 2013. Two completely different surgeries. Each time, I became swollen in my neck to the point that I could not move it, my arms took turns swelling up all the way from the shoulder blades to the fingertips, the area above each breast became swollen, my upper back swelled up, and my front from my hip to below my breast swelled up. Right now, I can barely move both my arms, I can't stand up straight, I have trouble getting dressed, and I can't wipe my own butt. I cannot twist or turn my torso. I am in constant pain, and my insurance will not approve compression/massage therapy. I've been to many specialists. I want to know if there is something I can do to help relieve the swelling and pain.

Re: SEVERE lymphedema- HELP!

Hi, Sorry to hear of your pain. I have problems with edema, myself, and I go to the Massage Therapist that does Lymph Drainage here in Athens, OH. It is really helping me. I live in Athens, OH. Perhaps, if you were to do a 'search' for a Massage Therapist who does Lymphatic Drainage in your area, you might have success. Mary
