Lymphedema in legs

Hi Teresa @hopeful33250,
This morning I sent my doctor/care team a followup message to the negative test results for the x-ray and ultrasound of the leg. I asked if the next step was to see my local care team or would he refer me to a lymphedema specialist at Rochester Mayo. He wants to refer me to the specialist but said they require a few tests before a visit with them (CT abdomen as well as a few lab tests). So he is scheduling those for me. Not sure when but hopefully next week.

@colleen00 I don't think it's cellulitis since it goes away at night when my leg is elevated but I'm no expert so maybe the other lab tests might show something else up.

John
