    The doctor listened to me and understood me. I havent had that when it came to lymphedema. I've been to some horrible doctor's that didn't believe anything except that I needed to lose weight. Or It was all In my head. I came away with a sense of hopefulness. Like finally I am not carrying the weight on my shoulders.

    He explained my condition well and what could be done to help it. He told me it would be better for me to take low dose prednisone pills when there is a flare up than so many shots of kenalog.
