Living well with Lymphoedema
We have made these films very carefully with our NHS health care professionals and people living with lymphoedema. All the information has been reviewed and signed off, but of course if you have any concerns you must contact your GP, lymphoedema therapist or consultant in the normal way. Some people say that they wish they could take their lymphoedema therapist home with them to encourage them and remind them how best to manage their symptoms. This is the NEXT BEST THING! The films are also subtitled in Welsh if you would prefer - there's a blue button below that will take you to them instead. Otherwise explore below!
What is Lymphoedema?
Learn more about cellulitis and how to identify and manage it. You’ll meet people who can show you what it looks like as well as a group of people learning how best to manage recurrent episodes. The good news is that good self-management can make a real difference.
Professor Keith Harding talks about the challenges faced when making a diagnosis. The British Lymphology Society have produced this “Red Legs Pathway” to help understand how best to identify and manage a condition which can look similar to cellulitis. It could be helpful for trying to work out whether you or someone you are caring for has red legs or cellulitis http://www.medic.video/red-leg-pathway
