Hi MlTerry

Super welcome to our family here :!:

Believe me, that pain you speak of is very common. One reason for it around those joints is the strain lymphedema puts on them. First, you have the extra weight from all the fluids, and secondly if one leg is larger then the other, the joints are trying to compensate for that weight difference in supporting you.

What all are you doing for it? have you had CDT/MLD and wear compression garments or bandages?
