OK- this is going to sound crazy- I have primary lymphedema (mainly my left leg is affected- not *horribly*- but the leg and foot are about an inch/inch and a half larger than the right.) I know darn well that nurses are on their feet all day- and I'm OK with that... However, I *am* curious about the risks due to the common staph presence in medical facilities... Has anyone known any medical professionals who have had lymphedema? I have lymphedema praecox (adolescent onset) and therefore am predisposed toward developing cellulitis. I can manage the standing/running around all day- but I *did* want to further explore the other issues with the predisposition toward cellulitis. Any advice/thoughts?
