Subject:lymphedema

These look like some good questions.  Hope there are some replies. Just want to say that I had 28 nodes taken during surgery.  Afterwards, It should be part of the process to learn how to brush (maybe some classes as a part of the program)  I didn't have a problem until about 5-6 months after surgery.  I think had  I been brushing from the begining I might not have had a problem. JMO I too have wondered about a hot tub or just a nice warm bath soak.  I seemed that my problem might have started after a restful soak in a warm bath.

Brushing
Thank you for your comments about brushing.
The issue of heat extremes as far as exacerbating lymphedema is discussed under the "hot tub" question. Individuals can develop lymphedema many years ( 20 +) after the main insult though most commonly within the first 2 years, so first noticing it associated in time with some other event may be chance.
