Because lymphoedema is a long-term (chronic) condition, it is important to stay involved in your lymphoedema care.
It can be hard to take all the precautions and do all the treatments that your lymphoedema specialist advises. It can take up a lot of your time, and you may need extra support from friends and family. Contacting others through a support group, or our Online Community can also help keep you motivated.
The information on this page explains some things you can do to stay healthy and as involved in your own healthcare as possible.
