Ask the Expert: Lymphedema
Anyone who has had lymph node surgery as part of breast cancer treatment is at risk for lymphedema, a condition where fluid builds up in your hand, arm or chest wall and causes swelling. But lymphedema often isn’t discussed or well understood. Whether you’re living with lymphedema or want to learn how reduce your risks of getting it, you may have questions about the condition.
Join us for our Facebook Live edition of Ask the Expert.
Janine Guglielmino, Living Beyond Breast Cancer’s senior director of programs and partnerships, will discuss lymphedema with Wilma Hazelwood, OT, CLT, LANA and Josh Levin of LympheDIVAs and answer your questions, live.
Visit our Facebook page at www.Facebook.com/LivingBeyondBreastCancer on the day of the event and click on the live video. If you can’t make it in real time, no problem. A recording of the program will be available after the Facebook Live broadcast. Viewers can submit questions for the expert ahead of time here, or ask them during the event.
