Lymphedema is often caused by chemotherapy and other treatments that impact the lymphatic system. Swelling may develop immediately or even months after treatment as a result of fluid build-up. This collection of fluid prevents the delivery of oxygen and essential nutrients to the swollen area, providing a medium for bacteria to grow while increasing your risk of infection.
At Home Health & Hospice Care, we offer a Lymphedema Treatment Program to help patients treat and reduce the swelling caused by undergoing chemotherapy. Our specialists are trained to help reduce swelling, improve your mobility and help you regain your life again. We treat patients throughout southern New Hampshire, visiting homes in Manchester, Nashua, Derry, Salem, Merrimack and beyond.
