Hi Anna

Has a doctor seen these lumps? If so, what are they saying about them? Also, are you under the care of a certified lymphedema therapist? They can not only do a management program for you, but show you some ways to wrap accirding to the condition of your legs.

In any event, please do have a doctor look at those lumps. Without an exam, it is literally impossible to even begin to guess as to what they are. If could be too that a therapist might be able to massage them away.
