Abstract

Lymphedema, a frequent and debilitating symptom in patients who undergo treatment for breast cancer, is often neglected. This article outlines a therapeutic strategy and provides a case study that illustrates that effective in-home treatment of this complication is possible. Effective treatment can dramatically improve the quality of life of this patient population.
