: The woman I love has lymphadema from the waist down. She's had it since she was 7, and is now 21. Early thearpy and treatment helped a little, and she's learned massage and other techniques that help reduce the problem. I would be interested in any information any one has on extended massage techniques or therapy regarding lymphadema.
I have just finished several months of treatment for this in my right arm due to cancer surgery years ago. It reduced 46% with massage and wrappings, but not I am in the process of waiting for 6 weeks for my arm sleeve and with out the massages it is bothering me again and swelling. The massages for the empyting of certain areas that suppose to act as drainage. I was hoping with this treatment my lymph system would teach itself new drain areas but no such luck. Today I have hot spots, and am miserable so must head to doctor to get something against danger of infection. If anyone else has any good ideas of care and treatment let me know. Peg
