June is each Wound Care Consciousness Month and Lipedema Consciousness Month, and the panelists and attendees on the Lymphedema Affected person Roundtable had quite a bit to speak about together with further subjects corresponding to compression clothes, medical pedicures, and staying cool in the summertime warmth.
What causes wounds? How can lymphedema sufferers forestall them? And for those who do develop wounds, what are you able to do to deal with them? Panelists Angela Jones and Catherine Rosenberg weighed in from private expertise, whereas lymphedema therapist Karen Ashforth provided useful insights on antibacterial and barrier lotions.
Not each lymphedema affected person has lipedema, however many lipedema sufferers develop lymphedema. The panel talked about why that’s, in addition to the variations — and similarities — between the 2 circumstances and their remedy.
The night closed with everybody sharing what they’re most “pumped” about this month. From summer season enjoyable and out of doors concert events to approaching surgical procedures and Lympha Press compression remedy, there’s a lot to sit up for for our Roundtable group!
