I don't know who to turn to. I take Furosemide and it doesn't seem to be helping as fast as it should be. Do I need to see a podiatrist or do I need to get a referral to go see a specialist? I've been off work for 2 and 1/2 months from total knee replacement and the swelling in my feet has not gone down the entire time. I'm a big guy, obese, 325 lb and that doesn't help.

Can ablation be done on a leg with lymphedema?
Lymphedema Treatment -3 answers
My left greater saphenous vein demonstrates severe reflux, slowing blood flow to the heart. The problem: I have lymphedema of the left leg. I've been told by a therapist that a cut or even an injection can disturb the lymphatic flow and that it can also cause me to go from stage 2 lymphedema to stage 3 or 4. I was told an injection may even bring on a cellulitus infection, which I have had several. Very concerned about getting an ablation on that leg. Will the procedure do more harm than good?
