Stage 2 Lymphedema

Stage 2 Lymphedema

(Spontaneously Irreversible): 

In Stage 2 lymphedema, the swelling takes on a spongy consistency and “pitting” is less present. At this stage, lymphedema does NOT respond to elevation. This tissue consistency change is caused by the formation of fibrosis, or scar tissue, with gradual thickening of the tissues on the limb as it increases in size.
