Boise , Idaho
I was diagnosed with lymphedema one and a half years ago after a stage one cancer in my breast was removed. The doctor insisted on removing two lymph nodes. On my one week checkup she informed me she accidentally took six lymph nodes/ I now have lymphedema in my right breast, my torso, and my entire right arm and armpit. After asking if she thought I had lymphedema she said no and that I needed no compression sleeve, it was not necessary nor did I need therapy. I went for a second opinion and that doctor informed me that I am immediately needed to seek therapy. There I was diagnosed with stage 2 lymphedema. My life has been changed forever.
