Hi....I am Joe Lange and retired paralegal now working for two attorneys in cleveland. We have a client, a 20 year old girl who sustained a crush injury to her left calf. It has been diagnosed as lymphadema and this has been confirmed. We are having her examined by a specialist June 6th.....relative to possible microsurgy. Do YOU know anything about microsurgery as a method of restoring appropriate lymph flow in the extremity???? We have licensed massage therapists who specialize in lymph drainage from areas near the affected area.
This is to relieve pressures etc.
Have you done any reading on this subject including histolory ( cellular structures) , anatomy and physiology????
My principal interest is in your own experiences
Many thanks......and hope your recovery has been
