Patient self-management of chronic swelling / lymphoedema

Do your garments still fit correctly? Have you noticed any skin changes? Do you feel your swelling / lymphoedema is under control?

This film explores how you discuss these issues with your nurse, or healthcare professional. This film will help you learn to take better control of your lymphoedema.
