: yes, unfortunately lymphadema is a horrible condition people do suffer from, I also suffer from lymphadema, i am 21 years old and i got it when I was 17 years old. My mother also has it in one of her legs. There just isn't enough information out there unfortunately, however for severe cases of lymphadema as with extreme swollense called elephantigitis, the one thing that helps big time is the weather. Here in Florida in the summer I suffer alot, but in the winter it seems to almost disappear. when i lived in Spain under extreme cold weather my lymphadema became nearly extinct.Please Email me so we can talk ....
.Hi my name is Monica and I have had Lymphadema since I was about 15 I am now 27. I have never heard of anyone else in this world who has Had this longer than I have. I am curious to speak to you and find out what are some possibilties in controlling this. Even if its only a little bit or just Plain controlling the emotional side of this. If you can help I would really appreciate it. Thank you
