Zach, I am so sorry to hear about your lymphedema and how it has negatively impacted your life. To force the treatment issue, maybe you could do some research into treatment that alleviates the swelling. Then tell your doctor you want it. If they shrug it off or refuse, try the word “sue.” It’s terrible to have to resort to that extreme, but maybe you have to, to get their attention. Good luck! Keep us posted. Sending healing prayers your way.
