Lymphedema is a condition that occurs when there is a blockage in the lymphatic system, causing swelling in the arms, legs, or other parts of the body. It can be caused by a genetic predisposition, cancer treatment, infection, or injury. Symptoms of lymphedema include swelling, discomfort, and limited mobility, and it requires medical attention from a lymphedema therapist.

Lymphedema Patient


I have Lymphedema from Chemo treatment of Hopkins Lymphoma in my abdomen. I have it in all four of my extremities, some worse than others. Getting medical help and treatment is extremely difficult. I wear compression clothing and have found that going to a warm water pool 3 times a week helps control the damage. I want to know more about it so I can to help myself and others.
