About 5 months ago I had an accident that resulted in a lymph flow blockage. Fat escaped from the liver and fell near the intestines giving me a diverticulosis and a once positive tb skin test that is now negative. The block is not identified on MRI or CT scan and because I don't have swelling in the legs or feet doctors refuse to order a pet scan or a Lymphscintigrapy scan. I have the stuffy nose, swelling of the righteye, elevated blood pressure,terrible rash,pressure to urinate,hot flashes from ***l and many other symptoms including terrible weight gain. I even went to the Mayo Clinic who could offer no help. Where are the best lymph doctors in the world? I tried TCM and it did help some but my liver became very tender and the practioner thought I needed surgery. Can you help with this? If a Chinese doctor or one familiar with the lymph system can answer that would help. Thank-You
