Spoke briefly about a week ago .Currently in Belgium post op ,having had microsurgery by Dr. Guido Giacalone in St.Dympnas Hospital in Geel Belgium.Early days yet but if you are interested I will glad to share the experience with anybody interested. I did not come looking for magic just relief from very debilating right leg. Regards Noreen.
Dear Noreen, It would be wonderful to share your journey and experience with you. I have emailed you seperatly. Blessings and light, MLD Ireland x
Hiya Noreen – I live in the UK and am thinking of going to Dr Guido Giacolone too. I have secondary lymphoedema in my hand and arm following cancer surgery last year.
I would really love you to share your experiences with me if you would be so kind!
May thanks, Mel
Hi, I just wrote to this doctor in Belgium. I am in Canada and have secondary lymphedema following breast cancer in 2010. I have lymphedema in my hand, arm and truncal area. my biggest problem is in my back as lymphatic fluids builds up from my upper back to my lower back. It is very difficult to treat that area as there are no ready made compression garment.
I would love to know how you are now feeling post surgery. Has this operation helped you at all?
Thank you for your response.
