What is correct way to massage for lymphadema?
I developed lymphadema last fall after breast cancer surgery with lymph node removal and radiation treatment. It was only in my upper arm until radiation, then spread to my hand. I am wearing the glove and sleeve and bandaging at night, but don't see much improvement. I've had 3 different people tell me 3 different ways to massage the lymph fluid. How do I know what is right or wrong? My short therapy taught me one way, and I've met two people who do it differently. Any suggestions would be very helpful.
