My name is Alexa, and I’ve had lymphedema since I was an infant. I wasn’t born with it – instead, I had needed corrective casts on my legs after I was born, and one of the doctors put them on a little too tightly, damaging the lymphatic system in my right leg. And just like that – lymphedema!
I created this blog to share my journey with lymphedema as well as help those who may be feeling alone in their condition. I also want to spread awareness of lymphedema to those who maybe aren’t so aware.
Although I’m pretty knowledgeable about the feelings that come along with having this disease, I’m by no means an expert on lymphedema. I’m not a doctor! I’m just a college student and avid blogger. If you would like to learn more about me beyond the lymphedema, click here!
