Out now!!! The new book from the LSN. Bearing the PIFTick quality standard mark you know this is information you can trust.

The book aims to empower those with lymphoedema with the knowledge and skills they need to live their best lives with the condition. It covers not only information about lymphoedema but also answers the questions we are asked on a regular basis. We were delighted to have the backing and support of Denise Hardy, the LSN’s Nurse Advisor, and Professor Peter Mortimer, LSN’s Chief Medical Advisor, who have both had extensive input to the book.

It covers a wide range of topics, from the key elements of lymphoedema care, right through to a chapter explaining what people need to know about surgical options. There are chapters on breast and torso lymphoedema as well as head, face and neck, and genital swelling. Lymphoedema in pregnancy, young children and teenagers has also been included. There is even a chapter about Self Lymphatic Drainage (SLD), which includes four demonstration sections, one each for arms, legs, breast and chest, and face, head and neck, together with photos showing people exactly how to carry it out. As far as the LSN is aware, this is the first time this type of information has been published in a book such as this!

The book is A5 in size, contains 174 pages and over 100 colour photographs. It costs £15.00 plus £3.50 UK postage and packing and can be purchased from the LSN website lymphoedema.org.
