Lymphoedema Loss


Friday September 12th

Having gone back to work, albeit on a reduced timetable, I am very grateful for my weekly lymphoedema massage sessions. Today both legs are measured, and amazingly, my left leg has shrunk compared to the volume of fluid calculated last time. Today it has 827 mls of extra fluid than the right, only 7% bigger! If I remember, last time it was 1.2 litres, so this is good news. I did think that being back in the classroom would present problems, as far as being on my feet for long periods of time is concerned.

My leg is massaged, I lay quietly, totally relaxed. A little peaceful luxury in my day!
