Patient Comments (1)
in Danville, AR |
I got lymphatic edema after a botched meniscus repair surgery. When he saw me my leg was obviously abnormal and he didn't inform me of what was going on. It just continued to get worse and worse until I saw a vascular surgeon who gave me prescription Ted Hose. I'm now able to work but my knee hurt's worse now than it did preoperative. I had my surgery in May of 2016 and now it's almost December.
