INFECTIONS, INSECT BITES??

Postby john » Thu May 08, 2008 12:05 pm

HI ALL

I OFTEN READ THAT INSECT BITES , & INFECTIONS CAN START THE EDEMA PROCESS GOING............I KEEP THINKING ABOUT MYSELF SINCE MY EDEMA SEEMED TO COME OUT OF NOWHERE AT 67 YEARS OLD..IN BOTH LEGS...
LAST YEAR I DID STUB MY RIGHT BIG TOE WHICH IT DID BECOME INFECTED. A PORTION OF THE TOE NAIL HAD TO BE REMOVED AND EVERYTHING CLEARED.......HOW EVER I KEEP WONDERING IF THIS TYPE OF INFECTION STARTED THE BALL ROLLING TOWARD MY EDEMA PROBLEMS.............IF SO WOULD IT TRAVEL TO BOTH LEGS ?????

THANK YOU........ALL REPLIES WELCOME

Hey John

It could well be that it did trigger things. By getting treatment and by doing mangement, it shouldn't travel to the other leg.

Surprisingly there are a number of members of our various groups that got lymphedema this way.
