Secondary Lymphoedema and Five Years of Self Care with The Deep Oscillation Personal
"My name is Anne and I would like to share with you my personal experience of using the PhysioPod.
In 2016 I had surgery to remove a melanoma from my left wrist and the lymph node biopsy carried out at the same time thankfully confirmed the cancer had not spread. However, the procedures did result in secondary Lymphoedema in my hand and I was referred for further treatment at the hospital’s Lymphoedema Clinic.
It was there that my Lymphoedema Nurse Practitioner asked if I would like to try a couple of sessions using the PhysioPod (Deep Oscillation Personal) and I was happy to do so. I found it really easy to use so she arranged for me to take one of the unit’s home, with a personalised programme card, for a six-week trial. I was so impressed with the results from using it at home for 20 minutes each day that the trial period was extended for several weeks and the benefits were so great I decided to actually buy one.
The rest, as they say, is history. I use the PhysioPod for 20 minutes every day and my clinic appointments are now 6 monthly. My Therapist is really pleased to see how well managed the Lymphoedema is now and how greatly improved the swelling is from when I first had surgery. Lymphoedema never goes away but the difference my Pod has made is truly remarkable and it goes with me everywhere, home and abroad.
And I would also like to thank the PhysioPod Team for all their information, help and all-round excellent customer service."
