First Leg Wrap.

on 6/11/13 4:29 pm - Orlando, FL

Woke up just now trying to kick my shoes off because they felt heavy.  Took a minute to realize that is was my whole lower legs that felt heavy and the reason why.  Feels like I have a blister on my heal, as the swelling goes down I have more room around my ankles and the tops of my feet.  Glad this first set is only for 24 hours to get use to them.

I do not understand, I thought the stockings were to help venous return and decrease swelling (making less pain?). I am new to lipedema and have not tried the stockings yet (and I se they are very expensive). Please let us know if they are helpful to you, I would really appreciate your guidance. Bless you for sharing your story.

They can try to pad the heel more before wrapping but that is always the place that rubs or feels like "cutting" at when I'm wrapped I think its from the foot moving it's just a place of friction.

I have Lipedema and Lymphedema. I also have a passion for Obesity and Health Insurance Advocacy
