Phase 1: Left leg SAPLSM
Phase 2: Left leg VLNT, LVAs
Lori is from California and has an accomplished career in real estate. She had liposarcoma cancer treated with extensive tumor resection, lymph node dissection and radiation therapy. After her cancer treatment, she developed severe stage 2 lymphedema in her left leg. For 12 years, lymphedema significantly impacted her physically and emotionally. After SAPLSM, VLNT and LVA surgeries with Dr. Granzow, Lori got her life back. She now wears less compression garments and enjoys trying new clothes that she could not wear before lymphedema surgery.
“Pain is reduced significantly. The lymph node transfer is working. I no longer struggle with swelling in my leg. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Granzow and I already do if I hear of anybody struggling with lymphedema. He’s an amazing doctor. He spends time with you and explains every process and every struggle you would go through and then he gives you the hope. The staff is phenomenal. They help walk you through each step, especially when you get discouraged.”
