Limph valve on right leg

Good day. My dad has an swollen right leg. About twice its normal size. Doctors says it is the limph valve that is not working correctly. He went for lots of tests and the doctors says there is not much they can do. Even is toes are swelling up like marshmallows. It will be nice to have some feeback and help.
Hope to hear from you soon.

Kind Regards
Lynn

Hallo Lynn
This is a difficult problem to manage (if it is lymph oedema it is probably not something that can be healed) It is managed by massage by a trained physiotherapist (and teaching the patient or family how to do it) and wearing compression stockings.
