Re: Lymphoedema or collateral damage

Hi Roxanne. I developed lymphoedema around 6 months after surgery. My whole arm was swollen. Particularly at the elbow. I was diagnosed as having it in my arm, breast and hand including my fingers. I bought an acupressure ring to run up and down my fingers to help with the flow of fluid. Michele

Lymphoedema or collateral damage

Can any you lovely ladies share with me how your Lymphoedema symptoms started please?

 

It's a year since my MX and i have swelling in two fingers on my effected arm. I've been told it's not Lymphoedema by my GP and BC surgeon and physio says it will go down in time and will not give me a compression garment.

 

it is my dominate hand and it's starting to get me down.
