I have developed lymphodema following breast cancer surgery. I’m wondering if anyone else has this and what you do to manage the symptoms. Thanks.

  • I don’t suffer from Lymphodema but my Mother-in-law does and really badly. She’s invested in leg wraps that offer her a little assistance but they are very hard to get on and not so nice in the hot summer weather. I know she’s joined a support group and she gets a lot of information from there.

  • oh sorry to hear that it is tough for you right now. i can only wish you well as i have no experience. hopefully you will get an answer from another mum. speak to your doctor or maybe ring the cancer hotline for some advice for managing it. good luck.
