In 2009, while going through breast cancer treatments, I developed an incurable condition called lymphedema which caused chronic swelling and pain. I was prescribed compression garments to help manage these symptoms. At that time, there were very limited options and to my dismay, none were right for me. These medical compression garments made me feel embarrassed, uncomfortable in my own skin and they didn't give me results. I felt alone, discouraged and hopeless.
Looking to find a solution, I discovered Solidea, an innovative Italian compression garment manufacturer. After trying their garments, I was blown away by how easy they were to wear and the results I got from wearing them. They made my body feel closer to its old self and even a bit more energized. I found I was able to focus more on my life and less on my lymphedema. I know this might sound a bit cheesy, but they gave me my hope back.
