Hello everyone, this is my very first post :)
I am just in the beginning stages of my weight loss adventures, so I am a complete nub lol I have a question to ask, does anyone here have or have had Chronic Wounds? I have had one huge one on my lower right leg for 5 years now, and a smaller one on my left for the past 2. My wound doctor basically said that I wont ever heal until I lose weight. I have never been diagnosed with L:ymphedema professionally, but the nurses agree that it seems like I do have it . My legs aren't swollen to the point of complete deformation, but they are swollen. I use the special socks and keep my legs up as much as I can. Due to my wounds, I havent been able to work, the pain is so extreme that I am on enough pain meds to kill a horse. Oh, sorry, Ive been rambling on and on...lol What my original question was - did anyone suffer from wounds and then have the surgery and have them heal and go away. I really need some good news, these things are really getting me down, they have completely changed my life style. Any help or information would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks very much, and great to be here,
