Recurrent Cellulitis - A Patient Perspective - 2019

"I suffer from secondary Lymphoedema after having breast cancer surgery. I have had recurring cellulitis in my arm, sometimes as often as three times a year. Just over a year ago, I was offered a weeks trial of Deep Oscillation by my local Lymphoedema Service. The therapy was good, so I decided to go down the route of having my own machine...

I found PhysioPod on the internet and so gave them a call. I found Julie very helpful, friendly, but most of all, caring. She answered any questions fully and promptly. Buying one of these machines was the best thing that I ever did. She has been helpful every time I have rung since.

I love my machine and use it every night, but it is up to the individual how often it is used. I am also now on prophylactic antibiotics (2 penicillin tablets a day. Hopefully for just another year). 

My arm has improved dramatically and the pain in my arm has gone. I have good skin quality and haven’t had cellulitis for over a year. The swelling in my arm is still there, but empty - I look like I have bat wings from my forearm up and I love them! The fluid has been reduced by Deep Oscillation and the less fluid I have in my arm, the less chance of infection.

It is so easy to use the machine and Julie set it all up initially to tailor for my needs - I have a programme of 30 mins in duration.

The machine also comes in a lovely backpack type bag too, which I have taken everywhere with me, on flights and even on a cruise!"

How does the DEEP OSCILLATION® help reduce oedema and fibrosis?

DEEP OSCILLATION® causes a 'shuffling' of the basic substance in the interstitium, thus promoting the removal of interstitial fluid as well as content material (proteins, decomposing cell material, neurotransmitters, etc.).

Interstitial septa and fissures are kept open by the mechanical activation, which helps interstitial drainage, which significantly reduces local oedemas, aseptic inflammations and swelling in the area of the wound.

In chronic conditions, the treatment helps to disperse fibrosis and hardened tissue.
