My mother-in-law was born in 1943. She lives with lipodystrophy. When she was diagnosed the CDC said she was one of 3 cases. She's recently been diagnosed with NASH (nonalcoholic steatohepatitis) cirrhosis. Due to it being a fatty condition, I'm wondering if it's related. She has far removed annually and is in pain constantly.

I suffer from abnormal accumulation of fat on my inner thighs and legs. A doctor has diagnosed this as lipedema and advised surgery. Another has diagnosed it as lipodystrophy and advised liposuction. I am confused. The problem was noticed only about 8 months ago. I am 63 and underwent weight loss (bariatric) surgery in 2008.The fat accumulation on the legs is painful at times.
