Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD)

Having heard lots of negative feedback regarding MLD, I was more than a little concerned when I developed Lymphodeema recently. I thought I had got off lightly post op/chemo and radio therapy. My consultant recommended a specialist in Portbury - Judith Fox. I have had 4 sessions so far, it seems to be really helping, the swelling has gone down considerably and the pain is far more manageable. I haven't experienced any of the negative side effects that people had warned me about i.e splitting headaches, nausea and vomiting. I can highly recommend Judith as a very gentle and caring expert in her field, she is fully qualified and operates within the private insurance guidelines.

  • Hi

    I have no knowledge concerning your condition, but I'm pleased for you that you seem to be getting the help you need. Good luck

    I would like to contact anyone who has had a sub-colectomy (removal of most of the colon) operation in the past or recently. I fortunately has been diagnosed clear of any further cancer....I would like to compare symptoms and concerns

  • Many thanks, I wish you luck. I know of several people who have attended Penny Brohn Cancer Centre with a similar condition to you, they mentioned they were using Cur-cumin and seemed to be having success with it, would be worth seeing the nutritionist to check it out.

  • Thank you I will look into this

  • Is there a nutrition in the house? Does anyone know if cur-cumin in tumeric? And would it be okay for me to take?
