From the Publisher:

In 2004, 275,000 women in the U.S. were diagnosed with breast cancer. For any of them who have surgery or are treated with radiotherapy, lymphedema — a disfiguring, painful swelling, usually of the arm — is a possible side-effect. About 25% of breast cancer surgery patients, or 50,000 women annually, experience lymphedema.

Most doctors suggest that little can be done, but the authors of Lymphedema: A Breast Cancer Patient’s Guide to Prevention and Healing believe that, on the contrary, something can be done. By Gwen White P.T., and Jeannie Burt, this book explains what a woman can do to prevent or minimize the condition. It provides extensive information on reducing lymphedema through professional therapy as well as exercise and self-massage. It also covers compression garments and pumps, diet, the effects of environmental chemicals, and the benefits of relaxation.

Complete with more than 60 illustrations, Lymphedema also shows patients how to find emotional support and resources for additional help. Personal stories of women who have successfully dealt with lymphedema highlight practical issues and give patients hope for the future.

From the Author:

This new edition provides updates on the latest research and information on the cutting-edge products and techniques developed for treating lymphedema. Since excess weight has been found to play a role, information about obesity and weight management is provided, and the nutrition and exercise sections have been expanded. Other new sections cover naturopathy, acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, and new alternative therapies currently being tested.
