I was sent to see a physical therapist for treatment of Lymphedema, with only the outcome of my arm swelling up more than it already was!
I have stopped therapy, and went to a generic Cellcept, against the advice of my Drs. However the swelling in my arm since the generic, my arm has gotten better and it has not effected my kidney function at all!
If there is any one out there that is having the same situation, I would love to hear what you are doing to have the swelling go down, or what your Drs are looking at to see why this is happening!!

I would hope they would have all 6 patience come in at the same time, to maybe get more details of what and when it all started and maybe come up with a Why and a how to fix! I have a lot of questions to ask at my annual visit on the 26th of this month!
Praying and Hoping for more than what I know at this point!
Thank you &
I don't know, maybe it is my twisted way of thinking, but I would like all of the 6 to meet at the same time with the Drs and try to get this figured out!
Thank you for your reply, I hope your toes are able to be corrected as well as my arm! I go in for my annual on the 26th of this month, I have a load of questions! See what I find out!
