It's bad enough suffering with the effects of lymphoedema but to have to go to a hospice for treatment is adding trauma upon trauma.
In our case when the local NHS hospital had exhausted all options they referred my wife to a hospice to get MLD. (manual lymphatic drainage) .
Sitting in a waiting room with the friends and families of patients having end of life care is just adding trauma upon trauma.
Why can't MLD therapists be located in a health centre or better still, a hospital? From the patient's point of view it's not much different to having to go to a crematorium for treatment.
Who makes these decisions?
