Lymphoedema 2023

Helen Eason

This Counterpart information session was recorded in Melbourne on 6 March 2023. After surgery and/or radiotherapy for the treatment of cancer, the lymphatic system may be damaged, and there is a risk of developing lymphoedema. Learn about what lymphoedema is, the 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, are covered. Our presenter, Helen Eason, is a physiotherapist and an Accredited Lymphoedema Practitioner with over 20 years’ experience in this field. Hosted by Kellie Holland.
