I have dealt with lymphedema for most of my life as a symptom of Klippel-Trenaunay Syndrome. For my entire adult life, I’ve worn a compression garment from another brand on my right leg to help with swelling and the associated pain.
In 2018, I was introduced to mediven at a medical conference. I decided to give this brand a try and it’s one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. When I opened my first stocking, I pulled it out of the box and thought to myself, “That’s way too small. I’ll never get it on my leg.” I couldn’t have been more wrong. It was a perfect fit with just the amount of compression that I truly needed.
Until trying mediven, I felt confident that my current garment was providing sufficient support. I quickly learned that I had been missing out! From day one, wearing the mediven brand reduced swelling, it allows me to be on my feet for longer before noticing an increased level of pain, and most importantly it helps me to better keep up with my six-year-old son.
