The video explains various types of surgery including Lymphavenous Anastamosis, lymphnode transfer and liposuction (SAL).
The video is quite long, I scribbled down a couple of index points that I found particularly interesting:
11:30 Information about Lymphatic Detour aka Lymphavenous Bypass aka Lymphavenous Anastamosis. I believe these terms covers for the same procedure.
19:00 Candidates for the above type of surgery.
20:20 Information about Lymph node transfer.
23:30 Disadvantages of Lymph node transfer.
45:55 Question from the audience about whether a patient with Lymphedema for many years can be a candidate.
Despite the challenges listed at 29:19 I personally still think that the LVA (Lymphavenous Anastamosis) is very interesting and that shall be very interesting to see what the future holds regarding this.
I should have some news soon from Miss C who was to have the procedure earlier this month. I am hoping to catch up with her next week, can't wait to hear about her progress.
If I one day was to have this surgery I know it wouldn't solve all my problems and that I would still have to wear a compression stocking but the thought of wearing skirts that are not floor long again and perhaps long, smart boots like I used to wear makes me dream...
