My lymphedema in my right leg began to swell about a month ago. Because it swells all the way to the top of my leg, my PT has been wrapping the leg and I leave it for 48 hours. It has begun to get much better but he says I need support hose. We tried the knee highs but that made the thigh worse; we tried the thigh high but it rolled down at the top and made it worse! SO! We ordered support panty hose! Well, I forgot to mention that incontinence is my companion these days and I need to change every couple of hours!!! So, how in the hech can I do that and wear support hose that require help to get on???????  Well, I tried cutting and taping Depend- even Gorilla tape won't hold the sides once cut. I tried the diaper ones but they were too huge!!! What is a girl to do?  Well, I did some research and did you know there is a company that uses NASA technology in their pull up underwear! It is guaranteed to hold for 8 hours! I ordered a pak as PT said 8 hours a day would be good wearing the hose. Ladies, they do not lie! They do hold for 8 hours and it is not uncomfrotable. So, another tip of my hat to NASA! They have solved my problem!!!   Hope this made you chuckle!

Does it abdorb urine?  It is more wondrous story than funny.    I guess in space they have the same problem.  They cannot have urine floting around with no gravity.  It is a great story.  Thanks for sharing.

Our friend Drew Morgan just returned from the space station a few months ago, and to hear his description of the bathroom up there is hilarious.  I applaud you for finding a solution to that dilemma, DF!  I was going to suggest cutting a slit in the panty part and having "crotchless pantyhose!"

Lol. Did that.i cut out the crotch because I didn't want to struggle getting them off fast enough and I like my cotton boy shorts so I wear them over the compression hose. Necessity is the mother if invention.
