lower leg lymphedema and tummy tuck

Postby armywife » Fri Aug 15, 2008 4:51 pm

Hello one and all,

Here is an update for you...I inquired about having tummy tuck done with LLE...today I got my 3rd and final opinion from Walter Reed plastic surgeon...absolutely NOT to have a tummy tuck asking for trouble....and he said if you were my family member I wold not do this procedure for you...so there you have it.that thought is now long gone from my head...on to another adventure....which is to try and see a lymphedema doctor...that is still in the works...will update that later as well....

Wow, armywife,
That was pretty definitive! Glad you've got that settled and can move ahead with other "projects." That seems to be the one thing we can count on: there's always SOMETHING!
Thanks for letting us know.
Onward, and be well!

that's my favorite question for surgeons..if i was your wife would you do this procedure... it usually gives u a good idea about their real opinion! Good luck!
