I thought I'd bring a little tip about the razor I use for shaving my lymphedema leg (and the good leg too). The razor is called Intuition, I am sure many of you already know about it. Around the blades is a soap unit which acts as shaving foam and provides a very gentle, safe – and smooth – shave. It is as if the skin is protected by the soap unit while shaved, one can hardly feel it, though it is very efficient. Before Lymphedema I would sometimes use this, and at other times an ordinary womens razor, but for the leg I dare no longer use an ordinary razor, too risky. A lymphedemagirl must take great care to not cut oneself due to the risk of infections, and I feel safe with this one. Although I find it very safe to use I still take extra care around the ankle, kneebend etc.
The units cost a fortune overhere so I usually stock up when abroad, ie in Boots when in London.
I just found out that California Dreaming is excellent rebounding material, the rythm and the duration is perfect for jumping! I've got it in a Forest Gump album on my computer, but you can listen to it here.
Have started up some alfalfa sprouts, they are to soak till tomorrow morning.
