 I'm so glad I ordered this book. Even though I'm a RN...and understand the body very a lymphedema patient too...I wanted to learn everything possible about managing my condition so that I'm able to keep my condition from progressing. While I've only started the journey...I found this book very detailed, insightful...what I was looking for. This condition demands a high degree of commitment of self all avenues of knowledge are like a weapon in the war.
