This lady has Lymphedema an Lipedema in both her legs due to surgery that went wrong. On her blog she shares her experiences from before her surgery and up till now where she is today, which is a very good place, it seems.
You can read her very first post shortly before the surgery here, where she explains a little about the procedure. On the mainsite you can find the posts that followed.
This lady links to another online surgery diary. I am not sure whether they are having the exact same operation but do check it out.
I am sorry it has been so long since my last post. I am well and things are good. Still no sign of a job, but things seems to be picking up a little and there have been more openings lately so I am hopeful. The wonderful man is still here and still wonderful. His name is Glenn. He really doesn't care about my leg. He sometimes helps me roll up bandages, how sweet is that! I think we are good together. While being in the middle of it I am also observing this wonderful thing that has happened to me. It is kind of unreal and very different - good different - than other attemps into relationsships I have had. I can be me.
I recently recieved the maxi dress on the pictures below, it is really not too bad. I will see if I can take a picture wearing it so you can see what it really looks like. I need to stop buying clothes from China on eBay as the quality is often not very good and the pictures can be very different from what you actually get but I was lucky with this one. The quality is not too bad. The dress is quite long too and not Asian sized. I am 168 cm high and is long enough for me. It comes in many different colours. I bought it here. The colour is a little bit different from the pictures but not dramatically.
