Lymphedema and Weight Training

I have lympedema in my legs and have being scared to train legs as hard as I should. Ive never asked a physician about the situation, but doctors have told me to stay away from it, but these are the same doctors that say weight training in general is bad and shes actually an old woman, so I dont know if thats just typical modern society being pussy or if she knows what shes talking about, so any advice on this would be great thanks.

Why do you have lymphedema?

What Horatio said.

Also, there is some treatment available. Consider examining CDT, self massage, or even professional massage. Don’t let that shit kick your ass, my friend.

I was born with it
