Tristan’s story

Tristan’s story

A guest blog post by Ala Tocila.

I would like to share my son's primary lymphedema (LE) story. Tristan is a six-year-old boy with primary LE, which has affected his left side of his body and his right foot. We live in Alberta, Calgary, Canada.

Tristan has had three surgeries in Paris, France with Dr. Corinne Becker, one lymph node transplant, and two surgeries in Canada. 

At the moment, we are expecting one more, which we hope will be the last lymph node transplant.
