Post Lymphodemia

If anyone has had any success dealing with or treating lymphodemia, please respond. I had a radical mastectomy 6 years ago, with 31 nodes removed and jsut started experiencing swelling and pain within the last few weeks. (Including half inch dents in my arm) Please help. Thanks, Debbie

Re: Lymphodemia

I am currently in treatment for Lymphodemia in my leggs my right legg is back to a normal size and my left legg (which was the worst) is on its way. This was due to the compresion wrapping and wound care I have been recieving. My Doctor set me ut with a physical theripist and they do the wrapping and the massage needed. At one time my legg was 4 to 5 times bigger and my wound was at least 3 times bigger and just 2 weeks of the therapy they are getting better when they are down to a normal size i will have to have compresion stockings but it realy improves my mobility getting them smaller and the fluid flowing thru my Lymphatic system. Check with your Doctor and get with a physical therapist it works. Take care and God bless.

Re: Lymphedema

My doctor sent me to a lymphedema clinic at the local hospital
I had 9 treatments and my swelling has improved. I will be getting my compression sleeve shortly. You need to have this taken care of as soon as possible. As lymphedema can get worse, if you not take care of it.
Have your doctor send you to a lymphedema therapist.
hope this help
