HOW TO USE THE GUIDE EFFECTIVELY

  1. Make sure you have a diagnosis of lymphedema from your treating physician (e.g. family doctor, phlebologist, dermatologist, oncologist) and a complete prescription for decongestive therapy and compression garments. Then…
  2. Choose a therapist from the Certified Therapists section (p. 6-12) and complete the entire cycle of decongestive therapy with bandages. Then…
  3. Choose a compression garment fitter from the Products and Services section (p. 16-20) to take measurements. Wear your bandages 24/7 until your compression garment is delivered.
