I was diagnosed with venolymphatic malformations in my right thigh in fifth grade. I had two sclerotherapy surgeries in 6 months to scorch some of the extra vessels. This, combined with heat, elevation, medication, and my custom Medi capri leggings have alleviated much of my pain. I am currently in 10th grade, and dance on the Varsity team at my school.
I am able to continue to do what I love because of my compression garments. They are just a part of me. I am trying out for an officer position this week, which will bring more intense dancing next year. I am grateful that I can still do what I love and remember thinking that this would not be possible just a few years ago.
I am including a few photos of my solo dance where you can see my medi® leggings as part of my dance attire. I am also sharing a link, which hopefully works for you, of a contemporary dance we just performed. It is about finding the light when there is so much darkness all around us. This is so important for people who struggle with pain daily like me.
