Have you ever had one of those moments where you thought "You've got to be kidding me?" Well, that was my thought Tuesday morning when I noticed an increased swelling in my left "foob", under arm and back. I placed a call to my surgeon and was referred to a physical therapist who specializes in lymphedema. It turns out I have what is called truncal lymphedema. (For those of you who are interested here is a good site that explains truncal lymphedema) Thankfully we caught it quickly and with daily therapy for a few weeks, the lymphedema should be able to be managed.
The thing that is most frustrating is trying to arrange these daily hour appts in a full work day. Plus the treatments have been making me feel "yucky" and really tired. Thus, I have had to scale back on any other activities besides work and therapy. (I was co-facilitating two LifeServe groups through our church and it just bums me that I need to temporarily "take a break.")
Praising and Thanking God!!
