I have resumed jumping on my trampoline. In fact, I started jumping again a while before the trip. My physio therapist thought that I should stop because she thought it was a rather stiff motion for the foot and ankle, and it may well be but I am convinced that it is essential that the lymph fluid gets exercised in order to not get "stuck" and and irreversible and thus the tissue getting hard. If that happens, it is for good.
When I started to jump a long time ago (see here), my leg was rather hard, but after a period of rebounding several times a day it went quite soft and even a little bit smaller. It probably means that it was still reversible, and it is because bandaging still helps, but I strongly believe that activities where gravity is involved are worth gold.
My problem area is the area around the ankle. When I go to bed at night and remove the compression stocking the tissue is hard and built up, though less when I have been wearing the stocking with the sewn-in pads. I am terrified of the tissue getting hard and stuck. I will have to do more to bring the size of my foot and leg down in case it should "get stuck".
I read many places that rebounding is good for the lymphatic system. Any other "jumpers" out there?
