Dr. Halligan, Harrison Medical Center, Lymphedema Update – Part 3 of 3June 2nd, 2012 by Sharon O'Hara
Thanks to four weeks at Harrison Medical Center Bremerton, Dr. Halligan, Doctor’s Clinic Silverdale and Martha & Mary Rehab Center in Poulsbo and my husband, Chuck, the latest annoying, painful Lymphedema outbreak is almost healed.
I hope with continued use of support stockings, I will never again see the open, painful weeping sores running down my lower legs.
Ignoring edema can lead to nasty painful Lymphedema outbreaks – not a place to go, folks – listen to your doctor.
The last two Lymphedema lesions might have healed months ago had not RLS or whatever the problem is, not raised havoc then and now forcing me to stand and move – the direct opposite of what I needed to do.
Following is Lymphedema By the Month Photos – from September 2011 to date.
And to think – it all started with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease after a forty year smoking history.
Thanks for reading…Sharon O’Hara
