Thank you so much for sharing this link. The site has loads of really interesting news and the tips are useful. I have had secondary lymphoedema following cancer treatment for two years now and I thought I knew a lot about self management... this is a great reminder and has extra tips too.


brilliant, lovesradio, thanks so much for sharing

as well as being useful for us, i'd suggest it's also good for, eg, taking to any atos appointments & giving healthcare providers who've forgotten some of their basic anatomy cos the 'what's this lymph stuff anyway' is great

really good resource, i'll be sharing it liberally, thanks again
