    I also have lymphedema in my left leg. I have worn support hose from Jobst for many years, but have not undergone massage to help move the fluid. Is it painful? How long have youhad this?

    I have lymphedema in the right leg from the removal of my lymph nodes in the right groin. I went to a lymphedema therapist to learn massage and exercise. It is not painful, it really relieves a lot of pain and swelling. I massage before I shower and after I shower in the morning. I wear the compression garment during the day and wrap my leg at night. The good thing is I am a massage therapist and I understand how it can help. Contact me at [email protected] if you have any other questions.
