For the ones of you that do not know what this is let me tell you now. Lymphedema is an abnormal buildup of fluid that causes swelling, most often in the arms or legs. The condition develops when lymph vessels or lymph nodes are missing, impaired, damaged, or removed.I have been living with this for over 8 years now. Once I got so I couldnt get out the house anymore i had to stop going to therapy. i have this in both my legs its worse in the right leg. I really think that my right leg weighs over 100lbs. Lymphedema had taken a toll on my life until now. I have taken back control and I will beat this and morbid obesity. I now walk through my house a few times a day for exercise. I was confine to my room you could say. All I would do was get up and go to bathroom and back in my room I go. All that stopped once I found Medifast. I now have energy and Im getting through the house. Yes, I said it I even go through there and sit with my family sometimes. Lymphedema is very painful for me. There is not a day that goes by that i am not in pain but I no longer let that stop me. I want to live and I will defeat and knock down every road block that get in my way.I bought me a walker because medicaid would not buy it for me which was $459 that was just about my whole SSI check. It didnt matter because my life is more important. I started building the strength back up in my legs 2 weeks later. I have been using it every since. At first I was hurt because im only 32 years of age and im having to use it. Then I sat down and began to think so what I'm on a walker I want be with it long because i am going to work on bettering myself. I have to do it for myself because I have no doctor that will help me out.
