    My thought would be to talk
    My thought would be to talk to your Drs and ask about seeing a Certified LymphEdemologist. (Yes they do work with more than BC LE issues.) Don't know why you are on diurtics but if they aren't working then there are other options out there. If it's cardic issues then compression garments can help. If is lymph node issues - compression garments can help. There are also MLD machines that can help. Talk to your Dr.

    I have to agree that you
    I have to agree that you talk to your doctor. There has to be something that can help you and a lymphedema specialist might be just that.


    Good luck!
