If you've been following my real life medical mystery, I'm finally getting some answers and solutions--6 years later! 

Here’s a 9-day-post-LVA surgery update for fashion-forward leg swelling recovery fans: Big Star jeans will fit over a full bandage, including the foam layer. How fabulous is that? The four incisions in my lower leg seem to be promoting reduction in the top of the leg, even with post-operative swelling in the ankle. Go figure. Such a strange and mysterious condition, but I am so thankful for blue jeans, modern medicine, and never-ending optimism. 

Life, community, and wellness are mutually and beautifully reinforcing.
