Hello lovely ladies! I came back from my first lymphoedema appointment feeling rather deflated. (Sadly, not around the upper thighs area! ;)) I have mild lymphoedema and the lovely nurse showed me how to do SLD, has booked me in for MLD and is ordering me compression tights. I proudly told her of my new love of the gym and about the fact I'm training to do Ride the Night - 100 km at the end of May. She is concerned about me making the lymphoedema irreversibly worse by cycling such a long way. I feel like she has wee-ed on my bonfire! Has anyone else gone a bit exercise-mad despite having lymphoedema and been told it's a bad idea?
