Top Lymphedema Blogs to Stay Connected

test

There comes a time in every Lymphedema patient’s life when one feels the need for a friendly shoulder to lean on and reliable advice. Lymphedema blogs are a great way to connect with your friends online “who have been there and overcome all”.

Lymphedema, as you would now be familiar from our previous lymphedema blog posts, is a severe inflammatory condition post radiation therapy, mastectomy or lumpectomy where lymph nodes are irreversibly damaged and lymphatic fluid accumulates in the surrounding areas like arms and legs.

The plethora of instructions regarding the do’s and don’ts of lymphedema can be mind-boggling for some patients and they may feel bogged down with the onslaught of instructions along with the restrictions on their daily day-to-day activities.

Lymphedema blogs hence provide a good platform to lymphedema patients for interaction with fellow lymphic people and sound guidance by lymphedema therapists and doctors.

These lymphedema blogs often have inspiring testimonies or real-life stories by other lymphedema patients in their own words about their struggle with lymphedema and eventual improvement in their conditions, thereby leading normal and happy lives like before.

Following is a list of top lymphedema blogs that would help you stay connected with your friends and lymphdema specialists and that too just a mouse click away!

Hi. I am so grateful for you for posting this information. I have struggled with Lymphedema for close to 2 years now, and I have to say that you're correct when you bring up the importance of having someone to lean on and lend you an ear from time to time. I have visited 'Lymphedema Girl" before and I love it, but I will soon be checking out the rest of the Lymphedema blogs you have listed here.

Thank you so much for posting this! My sister suffers from Lymphedema, and I will definitely be sending her the link to this post. You hit the nail on the head at the beginning of the post when you said it's only a matter of time before a friendly shoulder will be needed. This list of Lymphedema blogs will be such a tremendous resource for my sister as she deals with this.
