LEG

Mary-Ann Wood who has one leg which weighs three stone more than the other. See SWNS story SWLEG: A cancer-survivor will soon have a leg to stand on after a NHS U-turn promises to help her walk again – by draining fluid from her massive LEG. Mary-Ann Wood has struggled with mobility for more than a decade after a rare condition caused her left leg to swell up – and weigh THREE STONE heavier than her right. The 53-year-old beat cervical cancer 17 years ago, but soon after she learned she had lymphoedema, a rare condition that caused her calf to have a circumference of almost THREE FEET. The grandmother, from Midhurst, West Sussex, was repeatedly rebuffed by her local NHS trust – who refused to pay for the £11,000 treatment to drain the fluid from her whopping appendage.
