As part of our Complete Independence care program we are pleased to offer a Lymphoedema Awareness Day for our patients. This day is open to all patients and all types of lymphoedema.
We hope to explain and clarify any questions that lymphoedema sufferers and their family might have about their condition. We'll teach tips on how to manage a limb affected by lymphoedema: with exercise and diet, and also what to do during cellulitis attacks.
There'll be two self-massage practicals on the day; one concentrating on arms, and the other on legs. Classes will be taught with patients, emphasizing independence and self-bandaging.
We are also seeking volunteer patients who would like to share their inspiring stories; of how they managed their lymphoedema and, in so doing, improved their quality of life.
