The LSN’s book covering all aspects of lymphoedema and its management.

The aim of this book is to not only cover information about lymphoedema but to try and answer the types of questions the LSN is asked on a regular basis. We were delighted to have the backing and support of Denise Hardy, the LSNs Nurse Advisor, and Professor Peter Mortimer, one of the leading lymphoedema specialists in the UK.

It covers a wide range of topics, from the key elements of lymphoedema care, right through to a chapter explaining what people need to know about surgical options. There are chapters on breast and torso lymphoedema as well as lower limb, head, face and neck, and genital swelling. Lymphoedema in pregnancy, young children and teenagers has also been included. There is even a chapter about Self Lymphatic Drainage (SLD), which includes four demonstration sections, one each for, arms, legs, breast and chest, and face, head and neck, together with photos showing people exactly how to carry it out. As far as the LSN is aware, this is the first time this type of information has been published in a book such as this!

The book is A5 in size, printed in full colour and has over 100 images.
