A Edema, Cellulitis, Lymphedema Story in Pictures

June 28th, 2010 by Sharon O'Hara

I’m using a thumb drive to download these photo’s – I hope it works. I hope someone – somewhere – uses what I’m trying to say to avoid reaching this point of infection/heal. Reason being…each time, it is worse, takes longer to heal and the pain is relentless and sometimes unbearable.

Do whatever your doctor tells you to do – get rid of your edema. It isn’t funny nor casual. It can turn ugly and very serious.

    I had cellulitus 3 years ago in my left leg. It lasted about 3 weeks. This time it is in my right leg and it is now 2.5 MONTHS and the leg is still badly swollen. Redness comes and goes. Some discomfort. 15% overweight. 72 years old. Cronic kindey problems. Dr put me on IV then home w/meds. I see very little improvement. General health very good. Will try putting leg up higher starting now. Thank you all so much.
