Surgery: Right leg SAPLSM
Amy lives in Philadelphia and is a director at a distinguished real estate company. She had melanoma cancer at a young age and developed stage 2 advanced lymphedema in the right leg after lymph node dissection and radiation therapy cancer treatments. Her lymphedema took a toll on her quality of life. It was hard to take walks or exercise. Wearing compression garments made her feel very self-conscious. After SAPLSM surgery, she felt much better about herself mentally and physically.
“I’m very happy with the results. As soon as I got home . . . my leg just started to reduce in size and the swelling was going down and down. Just 2-3 months later my leg was about the same size as the other one.”
“Since my SAPLSM surgery last year, my leg has continued to reduce in size and feels more manageable. I feel like I am able to wear skinny jeans and leggings and feel confident about the way that I look. I have been saying “yes” to more invites and even plan to go to the beach this summer.”
