Body lifting - Massive weight loss in patient with Ehlers Danlos
- I am so glad you have lost so much weight -
- As an ED patient, your skin will not have good elasticity
- You can have whatever body lifting you need - but you need to be prepared to have a second round of surgery as skin may loosen further.
- See a plastic surgeon and plan your surgery - you defintiely want to address the areas affecting your ability to walk as soon as your reasonably can.
