Lymphedema

“Lymphedema is the accumulation of lymphatic fluid in the interstitial tissue, causing swelling. Lymphedema can develop when lymphatic vessels are missing or impaired; or when lymph nodes removed, such as during surgery for cancer. It may develop as a result of surgery, radiation, infection or trauma. Lymphedema may be caused by the weight of a fat apron, the excessive pressure congesting the lymph and blood vessels of the lower abdomen. Patients will note swelling, darkened skin, hardening and thickened abdominal tissue, dryness, fissures, itching, pain, and development of warty growths or ‘papillomatosis’. They may note development of ulcers in the skin folds and in traumatized areas: and inability to get ulcers in the damaged skin to heal.” (Fore, Study # LIT452)
