Thank you, Cindy, I will be seeing a Certified Lymphedema Therapist in a couple of weeks. I've googled lymphedema specialists near me and that's what I got. Are they different from a Lymphedema doctor? I can't seem to figure it out Do you have the name for any online lymphedema support groups? I don't see any when I google.

@rosy33 I'm sorry my reply is so late. I changed some of my settings on my computer to block some weird emails and now I don't get my Mayo Clinic updates, so I'm a little behind. I have not been able to find a lymphedema support group in my area either. It's a bit of a challenge but there is a lymphedema national support website. They may have some resources there. I am seeing a Physical Therapist who specializes in lymphedema and in the past I had a lymphedema massage therapist. As soon as the virus quits raging I hope to get back to some regular massage therapy in addition to my PT. I highly recommend regular massage therapy. It helped me a great deal when I was first dealing with this and then I backed up (bad idea). Lymphedema is a bit sneaky in that it seems to resolve and you think you're ok but it requires on going management. I learned that lesson the hard way. Good luck and hugs to you.
