Voices of Lymphedema

Stories, Advice, and Inspiration from Patients and Therapists

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Chronic swelling due to lymphatic fluid, or lymphedema, affects 3-5 million Americans including 20-40% of cancer survivors. Lymphedema is so little known—even among doctors—that it has been called the ‘silent epidemic’ but there is effective treatment that can break the cycle of recurring infections and even reverse lymphedema-related disability!

Learn from patients and therapists: Inspiring personal stories; Advice on getting a diagnosis and finding treatment; Solutions to common problems and practical tips on self-care; Activities they enjoy and travel tips; Support groups and outreach to the medical community; Issues in treatment coverage and reimbursement.

“An excellent resource for lymphedema patients, therapists, and other health care practitioners. It’s a book that should be required reading in all schools that turn out healthcare providers.”
Kathryn McKillip Thrift, BS, CLT-LANA
