The lymphatic system is a nexus, or series, of vessels similar to that of the circulatory system—the branching vessels move vital bodily fluid throughout the tissues and organs of the body.

Being in front of an audience of health professionals, with special interest in breast cancer , I think I have an excellent opportunity to give answers to three questions on the Lymphedema which have the potential to affect the patients' quality of life.
1st QUESTION: Is there a cure for Lymphedema ?
YES THERE IS!
Although Lymphedema is a chronic problem, with the appropriate therapeutic approach by qualified Physiotherapist, it can be effectively confronted, thus giving the opportunity to the patient to lead a normal life.
2nd QUESTION: When should I start the therapeutic rehabilitation program for lymphoedema ?
During a study with my team in order to evaluate the effectiveness of the applicable treatment program for lymphoedema , we came up with interesting findings. According to those findings, patients are in danger of
developing Lymphedema mainly during the first 3 years after the surgery , and then there is a risk but to a lesser extent. The obese women aged from 50 years and over increase the risk for developing secondary Lymphedema . Although the effectiveness of the treatment is clearly higher in Stage I, it is impressive that 93.3 % of patients came for treatment when they were in Stage II . In a related question they were asked, they replied that they did not come earlier for treatment because no one suggested it to them. They had not been informed of what caused the swelling, nor what they should do next . We strongly believe that this is just one of the major problems that needs to be managed by all of us who deal with the Oncology Rehabilitation.
3rd QUESTION: What is the appropriate treatment for lymphedema ?
In the video below you will have the opportunity to see the basic principles of the treatment for lymphoedema, in order to realize the true necessities of the patients, according to their specific needs.
We consider our patient as a whole with a psychosomatic dimension, which is characterized with a harmonious functionality. Health, which is the target and its' ' conquest ' which is of the most important goal in life, is achieved when all parts of the body are free and work in harmony with one another, whether that relates to the functioning of a cell, or in operation the most complex system in the body. The disturbance of this harmony is responsible for many pathological and painful situations.
Pain is the sensation of risk perceived by the brain - taking into account past experiences of the individual - for damage or potential tissue damage (such as muscles, ligaments, joints , nerves , etc. ) . As well as many of the injuries that we experience in our lifetime , whether they are purely emotional , or have important emotional background , or cause emotional reactions .
