I met Meg in Bad Steben, Germany in March when we were both having lymph-sparing liposuction surgery with Dr. Josef Stutz. Meg is dynamic and direct – willing to share her story and her journey. Her faith, courage and determination is very inspiring and helpful. This is a very short clip from a much longer conversation! Thanks Meg!


Comments and feedback most welcome! Remember to spread the word about lipedema.
There’s more to the story: there may be more WHYS to body SIZE!

    Really engaging. I wanted to hear more……

  3. I just found your site. Thank you for sharing this. I have lipo-lymphedema and didn’t know June was lipedema month. I have been so discouraged (I have stage 3) and this gives me so much hope to know I’m not alone.

    • Hi Laura, Yes, there is hope. I also have lipo-lymphedema, surgically induced lymphedema, and it turned out life-long undiagnosed lipoedema. I’ve found answers, and there is treatment. Best, Catherine
