Selling my compression pump

I have decided to sell my old compression pump, the PulsePress Multi12 on eBay. I also have a Lympha Press so the PulsePress is just sitting in its box not being used. It is in good condition and have not been used much. It will probably make most sense for Europeans to buy it as the shipping costs outside Europe for a 7 kg beast are horrendous.
You can view the pump here. I am also still selling the lonely partners of my odd-sized shoes, check them out here. I have a couple more than listed at this time as they are more for winter but do ask if you are interested. I have just listed some leather sandals with closed toes, check them out.

Since I heard about CNN's Freedom Project many months ago I have been wanting to support organisations that helps women and children that are victims of slavery or for other reasons need help. Last month I donated some money to an organisation that helps victims of acid violence. One can donate as little or as much as desired and with PayPal. If you want you can check it out here:

I have been thinking about giving the cabbage poultice another try, perhaps doing it every night for a month or so. I really think this is a powerful remedy and who knows if it could help us. More about this soon.

Thank you for your comments, they really mean a lot to me and to other readers. I am sorry I am being so slow to reply.

Update: Sold.

  1. What's the general view on pumping these days? I've read several different schools of thought on it and it seems that thinking is starting to move away from it....? I've never been encouraged to do it here in Japan but would like to hear about other peoples' experiences with it. There's no question that having it done for me like that would be easier than doing massages myself, which I've been told are the optimal option.

    1. Hi Elaine, who knows if it is good or bad to pump - my therapist says there are nothing that indecates that it should be bad but I am not sure. I don't really use my pump much, partly because it takes time etc. but also because I am not sure about the possible risks. Yes, it would be much, much easier for you than the self massage, definitely. I wonder if you have been advised against it in Japan?

  2. I have been perusing your wonderful blog and enjoying it ever-so-much! I am a 56 year-old woman who was finally diagnosed with primary lymphedema after living with it since I was 21. Oh, the stories I could tell! I first noticed the lymphedema after the surgical removal of a brain tumor. Imagine my surprise when I awoke from said surgery with five doctors staring at my FEET! My legs had always been quite large, but full-blown swelling, which extends from toes to thighs on both legs didn't happen until that first surgery. Well, it has been an incredibly journey, these three and half decades of non-diagnosis, coupled with recurrences of the brain tumor on the same site! , But after bandaging my legs for the past three years, I haven't had an infection since I began my love affair with compression neoprene wraps.So, how long have you been living with the lymphedema, and how to you manage to keep your sense of humor about it?

    1. Hi Scone Queen, thanks for writing :-) 35 years with Lymphedema without being diagnosed, OMG! Unfortunately you are not the only one with a story like this and it once again proves how ignorant doctors are about our condition. I am so glad that you finally were diagnosed and that you benefit from treatment.
      My leg Lymphedema started in 2009 after a back injury. Perhaps it had nothing to with it but I think it did. However, it seems like anything can trigger it if one has that defect in the genes. An accident waiting to happen... Thanks for thinking I have a sense of humor about it :-) I guess that's what I am like, I laugh at myself. I sure didn't laugh for a good year or so after it started but have very gradually learnt to live with it. I guess you have too after all these years although it must be a tremendous help to now know what it is and what to do about it.
      Take care, and thanks for reading my blog.

    3. Hi Hks Greddy, I sold mine on eBay and my suggestion would indeed be to consider that.
      Kind regards
