Compression Facial Care: My Second Face

I have seen many restorations since my diagnosis and am always keen to learn as much about lymphology and other sufferers as possible. This is how I met the feedback from a reader who feels very alone with her situation. There is a suitable compression supply for practically every part of the body, because even if lipedema theoretically only affects the extremities, lymphedema can develop almost anywhere. And so there is the compression facial care, which I am able to bring you closer to today.

One of our readers has bravely agreed to report anonymously about her facial care. If there is someone out there who shares their fate and wants to exchange ideas, they are very welcome to contact them via email (caroline@lipoedemmode.de) or via the Get in touch turn to us and we will arrange everything else. I would be very happy if this would help me make contacts.


My second face

I have secondary lymphedema on the left side of my face. It was created through an ear operation. It took the doctors two years to make this diagnosis. Unfortunately, the edema presses on the trigeminal nerve causing pain. Tension, pressure and pain are my daily companions. In addition, my face is disfigured, swollen, etc. every day.

I have to wear a compression face mask, which is not always possible in everyday life. In addition, I tape my face and neck, which puts a lot of strain on and disfigured my skin - I am desperate. I get lymphatic drainage at home twice a week and look for someone who has experience in what can still be done. Unfortunately, I don't know anyone who has it on their face.

Professionally, I can't wear the mask, which doesn't make it easy, and I also take medication to endure the pain. I received a recommendation from rehab to submit an application Reduced earning capacity to ask, which burdens me a lot.

Alone with my compression face supply

I'm also currently looking for talk therapy to somehow deal with it, but unfortunately I'm on the waiting list. I feel so alone and would be happy to meet like-minded people, I haven't found anyone in self-help groups or in rehab.

I'm Caroline, born in 1989 and live in Augsburg. Why did I start the lipedema fashion blog? At the beginning of my diagnosis I was completely helpless before an uncertain future. Now, a few years later, through active participation in self-help groups and a lot of research, I have accumulated a wealth of experience that I would like to make available to other affected persons in one place - without the detour via private groups on Facebook. The fashion component is of course due to my hobby. At the time, I promised myself that I would never be restricted by compression stockings. This attitude gives other patients courage and so Michaela advised me to start a blog.
