"There are estimated to be a hundred thousand people living with lymphoedema in the UK. And the number is growing as more and more people survive cancer for longer but without a lymphatic system - which leaves them vulnerable to painful swelling and serious infection."
There is very little treatment for lymphoedema available on the NHS. - I myself am paying for lymphatic drainage massage once a week at the moment. Recommended therapies are exercise, manual lymph drainage and compression therapy. I found a private lymphoedema therapist in my area by searching on the internet.
