Anyone else had lymphadema?

Mine is in the left ankle and leg with some swelling in the right one. Is there anything other than support hose that might keep it under control?

Yes...when cancerous lympn glands were removed. Kept under control with self massage [see a lymphedema massage specialist] and support hose. Massage is crucial for control.

Whenever you are sitting, use an ottoman to keep your legs elevated. It has helped immensely for me.
