: My mother has had secondary lymphadema for about ten years, she also has primary in the other leg. Massage and compression bandaging has not helped and she is now in constant pain and wears body stockings. The side effects with other related illnesses are horrendous. I have now found out my infant son has lymphadema in his right foot. There are many web sites dealing with the deatails but no cure. Places such as the Tasmanian Lymphodema clinic in Australia have had success with laser.
