Two years ago I developed leg lymphedema following a radical hysterectomy, lymph node removal, and radiation for Uterine cancer. I am now 57 and cancer free but Lymphedema runs my life with several hours of required daily therapy and treatments. Although Lymphedema is not part of the vascular system I am concerned of any drug interaction that would complicate my Lymphedema.
