I a fortunate enough to live in Mumbles near Swansea and have just benefited from LVA surgery on my left arm.
I had mild to moderate lymphodema for 14 years post breast cancer and was delighted to be offered surgery as one of 46 per year.
Five sites were chosen one turned out to be a no show “vein” but the other four all had at least three anastomoses.
Post surgery day 5 now wearing a full compression garment that’s ok not comfy but not hurting!
9 days to stitches out no driving until then
