Lymphoedema Care Services
Lymphoedema is a side effect that can begin during or after breast cancer surgery. It tends to happen to the breast cancer patients who have undergone axillary lymph node removal. With a view to helping patients prevent and relieve lymphoedema, we provide a range of Lymphoedema Care Services:
Measurement of lymphoedema index: provides regular fluid volume measurement for patients/survivors to detect early symptoms and monitor lymphoedema.
Preventive Lymphatic Massage and Exercise Class (Monthly): teaches self-lymphatic massage skills and exercise for prevention.
Lymphatic Management Support Group: teaches skills for lymphatic massage and exercise and offers information about pressure garment use and nursing tips for lymphoedema care.
