Lymphedema is the dirty little secret of breast cancer.
No one wants to talk about it. I was assured by both my BS and PS that with only sentinel nodes removed I wouldn't get it. They were wrong. The ensuing months of trying to get someone to help me, listen to me was infuriating!
I found the step up speak out website and it was a huge lifesaver for me.
I wasn't alone.
I wasn't crazy.
Through that site I was able to find a certified LE therapist.
One of the founders wrote an article this week that is the most beautifully written yet informative piece on LE that I've ever read.
Pass it along to others.
Get the word out.
Let others know that they are not alone.
