Thank you Klaus, for your words of encouragement.
I want to post more about my condition, maybe it will help someone. Also I am looking at diet and nutrition.
I have had fatty lipomas since my early 20s. I was a very very slender young lady then.
The lipomas first appeared in my fore-arms.
When I reached my late 20s, sill very slender, lipomas developed in my things.
I had some lipomas removed from my arms, but didn’t have the thighs done, I wanted to see how well I would heal before trying that. (I also develop keloid scarring sometimes).
The surgery was great relief. Done by a cosmetic surgeon, the scars were just tiny thin white lines, no raising of the tissue, just a discoloring.
Eventually the lumps in my arms have grown back. : (
The lumps in my thighs are painful if pressed upon.
I haven’t had health insurance for 7 years, so have not had opportunity to seek treatment, and in these days in the US, an insurance company might easily find excuse not to cover the removal.
Now I am 52 years old, and the lumps in my fore-arms and thighs are getting bigger, and there are more of them. New lumps have just recently appeared – on my knees.
This is so depressing. The lumps hurt and I’m worried that I’ll get more and more of them.
Appearances are another issue. Who wants to have lumps sticking out on their body?
This seems to be familial, my older brother has same problem.
Because of circumstances, in the past year or so, I had not been eating healthy foods, and couldn’t afford niceties like organic milk.
This may be why I've had what seems to be sudden increase in size of lumps and appearance of new lumps.
Now I can afford to do a bit better so will make changes. Today I am
I’m going to start taking:
- throwing out the regular milk (and the hormones it is laden with),
- throwing out the soy milk (I used to treat hot flashes). And
- I’m throwing out the artificial sweetner.
- vitamin e (for the hot flashes)
- bromain – natural supplement that aids in digestion
- apple cider vinegar – (can’t hurt, my mother took it for years for arthritis, but it is also known for aiding digestion)
I’m looking into taking tumeric.
If I could afford surgery, I'd immediately have it done, by a cosmetic surgeon, if at all possible.
Even if some or all of the lumps grew back, it would be a relief and well worth it.
I will check back again.
