"In the autumn of 2004 I had the shock of my life when I was informed following an angiogram that I needed heart bypass surgery. I had been a fitness instructor for almost 30 years and had only gone to see my GP with what I thought was a chest infection......
......His sharp diagnosis of a deeper problem took me through various tests before coming to this rather frightening realisation.
I had my surgery early in 2005 and it wasn't straightforward. I came home to recuperate and even that wasn't as quick as I had thought it would be.
One of the procedures that goes along with bypass surgery is the harvesting of veins for the grafts, in my case from the legs. Legs, because attempts in my left leg were not successful so my right leg had to be attacked also. These procedures left long wounds which also took time to heal and left significant scares.
It was about a year later when I noticed one day that my right leg was looking larger than my left leg. I got a tape measure out and sure enough there was a difference of 5". It was also aching slightly. I made an appointment to see my GP who shipped me off for tests, first for a blood clot and then for any other kind of blockage. These proved negative. He then told me that he thought what I had was lymphodema. I waited for him to suggest treatment and when I asked him what I could do he said 'nothing'. I refused to accept that there was 'nothing' I could do so I pushed him. He said the best he could do was prescribe me compression stockings which I would need to wear 24/7. This was not good news.
I sought advise elsewhere and was fortunate enough to be living within driving distance of a therapist who specialised in helping people with lymphodema. I went to see her and after consultation she treated me first with bandages and then with fortnightly massaging. It eased my aches considerably and kept me free of the dreaded tights. After about a year of this my therapist acquired a new machine called a Physiopod which worked through deep oscillation massage. The results were amazing. Now I only needed to visit her once a month which apart from anything else was a considerable financial benefit!! I don't know how much time passed before I was told that the company who made the Physiopod had brought out a personal machine, smaller in size but equal in effect to the larger one. It was pricey so I needed to think about it. When I sat down with my husband to talk about it he immediately said this was a 'no brainier'. What was more important than my health and keeping me mobile......nothing.
So I ordered my machine, which came with a personalised data card specific to my needs. I had one 'training session" with my therapist and now I was on my own. Any worries I had were completely unfounded. Treating myself twice a week has kept me under control, ache free and totally mobile. I take my machine everywhere, on holidays it has been invaluable, many times when I have been in places where it has been hot and I have been standing or walking a lot, it has literally saved that holiday from being ruined.
My Physiopod has become a treasured possession. If I were ever asked the question 'what one thing would you rescue if your home was on fire?' there's no doubt in my mind it would be my machine!!! It also comes with a data card for treating other sports injuries and I have had occasion to use this a few times too. In particular it's sorted out problems with Achilles tendonitis on several occasions.
I whole heatedly recommend this machine to anyone plagued with lymphodema, it will change your life"

Claire Tickle, Lipoedema Sufferer Completes Final Surgery With Consultant Plastic Surgeon Anne Dancey And Confirms DEEP OSCILLATION® Was "Crucial To Her Post Surgical Recovery"
In three out of seven operations in Claire Tickle's surgical journey for Lipoedema, which have been carried out by Consultant Plastic Surgeon Anne Dancey, DEEP OSCILLATION® has been used pre and post surgically. Firstly, in order to prepare her tissue for liposuction and secondly to enhance and reduce the surgical recovery rate. Please read the full article below the LipoGraphic to discover more about Claire's lengthy journey; from being told at aged 15/16 by her GP that she was "fat and to go away and diet" to being diagnosed by Professor Mortimer in 2009, aged 32, with the painful adipose fat disease Lipoedema. Despite being refused Liposuction treatment on the NHS, Claire Tickle, a single working mother, bravely went ahead with raising funds. With the support of friends and family to improve her quality of life, she has had dramatic and life-enhancing surgery to reduce the constant pain of this chronic and slowly progressive disease. Though Claire still has some healing to take place, she now reports that she has 'no pain, which is heaven!" PhysioPod are very proud of Claire and her determination and wish her all the the best for the future. She has been a role model to other sufferers and has created a tremendous amount of awareness of this terrible disease through various media (including baring her ten stone legs on National Television). She has given others the courage to seek a diagnosis and get the help they so rightly deserve.

A Review Of The TALK Lipoedema Spring Conference 2017 - Living To Your Full Potential and a look at Milestones in the UK Lipoedema Journey
Lipoedema is an adipose fat tissue disorder which effects an estimated 11% of the female population and yet, most surprisingly, it is not a condition that is covered in medical schools. It is a very cruel disease which affects sufferers both physically and mentally, impacting greatly on self confidence and self esteem. It is regularly misdiagnosed as simple obesity and it is also mistaken for Lymphoedema.

Award Winning MLD DLT Lymphoedema Practitioner, Dee Stringer of Swelling Matters To Provide DEEP OSCILLATION® Massages At TALK Lipoedema Roadhow in Kent 9th July 2016
DEEP OSCILLATION®, developed by Physiomed Elektromedizin in Germany is an internationally patented therapeutic design which utilizes the forces of pulsed electrostatic attraction and friction to provoke oscillations, which act deeply on the tissues of the body from the epidermis down through the conjunctive and adipose layers and into the muscles. Hernandez Tapanes et al (2010) were able to prove, by diagnostic ultrasound, penetration of the oscillations up to an 8cm depth (see diagram).

Claire’s Story – A Single Mum, Struggling To Cope With Lipoedema
What is Lipoedema? Lipoedema (NOT Lymphoedema) is a chronic, hereditary and genetic disorder of the adipose tissue (or body fat) which can be both disfiguring and painful. It predominantly affects women (although men can also suffer) from the age of puberty and beyond. Sufferers may have a normal slim (upper) body shape but a much larger disproportionate lower body below the waist without changes made to diet or exercise regime, in some cases, upper arms are effected too. As Lipoedema progresses, additional, expanding fat cells interfere with the pathways of lymphatic vessels and sufferers can develop secondary Lymphoedema and it then becomes known as Lipo-Lymphoedema. The effects of Lipoedema on the patient can also cause great psychological distress for the sufferer.
Jill, Aged 74 And A Lipoedema Sufferer Delivers An Optimistic Closing Message for 2015: There is effective, non-invasive Lipoedema treatment out there.

With the support of Talk Lipoedema, there is no stopping her as she shares her ultimate goal for 2016! Thank you so much Jill. x
Results of PhysioPod® Anonymous Lipoedema and Lipo-Lymphoedema Survey conducted at the Lipoedema Ladies Big Meet 2015

Lipoedema (Lipodema) now has a dedicated page in Fields of Application in the PhysioPod website
What is Lipoedema? Lipoedema (NOT Lymphoedema) is a chronic, hereditary and genetic disorder of the adipose tissue (or body fat) which can be both disfiguring and painful. It predominantly affects women (although men can also suffer) from the age of puberty and beyond. Sufferers may have a normal slim (upper) body shape but a much larger disproportionate lower body below the waist without changes made to diet or exercise regime, in some cases, upper arms are effected too. As Lipoedema progresses, additional, expanding fat cells interfere with the pathways of lymphatic vessels and sufferers can develop secondary Lymphoedema and it then becomes known as Lipo-Lymphoedema. The effects of Lipoedema on the patient can also cause great psychological distress for the sufferer. It is very important for people with lipoedema to eat a healthy diet and follow a programme of low impact exercises such as swimming, walking or cycling.
