Do you have lymphoedema?

Lymphoedema is swelling due to a build-up of fluid in the tissues that can’t drain correctly.

Swelling can affect any part of the body, but is mostly common in arms and legs. If the swelling is left untreated, these fluids will stay permanently fixed in the affected areas.

Lymphoedema can occur as a side effect of cancers and their treatments, from an injury or infection, or in those with obesity and reduced mobility problems.

Some are even be born with the condition. Although there is no cure, Michelle Starr can improve chronic swelling and discomfort with specialist lymphoedema management.
