Lymphoedema 2021

Helen Eason

This Counterpart information session was recorded in Melbourne on 2 March 2021. After surgery and/or radiotherapy for the treatment of breast or gynaecological cancer, the lymphatic system may be damaged and there is a risk of developing lymphoedema. Learn about what lymphoedema is, early warning signs, how to minimise the risk of developing lymphoedema and what to do if it develops.  The impact of exercise and massage, as well as where to find assistance will also be covered.  Our presenter Helen Eason, is a Physiotherapist and an accredited lymphoedema practitioner with over 20 years’ experience in this field.
