I have posted recently about my dad losing ability to walk very rapidly due to failing lymphatic system.
My dad described in detail the exact moment he felt a switch in his body and he realised something was very wrong. It happens almost 60 mins after his 5th radium 223 injection.
He felt the instant effect and then his legs swelled up.
Has anyone has manual lymphatic drainage massage for swollen legs in advanced cancer, and does it help.
I spoke to someone who does this and reports after a few weeks the movement improves and if done daily can be hugely beneficial. Especially combined with oscillation machine and compressive bandages.
But a level 3 qualification is required. Seems to be a real shortage of people offering this. I will do the course myself and perhaps consider a career change!
Has anyone has this? Is it beneficial. I would give my own legs up to see my dad walk again.
