Yesterday we met 1in9 patient Sherri G. and Certified Compression Fitter, Christina Bernard to get Sherri measured for a Lymphedema Sleeve.
Lymphedema is a condition of localized fluid retention and tissue swelling caused by a compromised lymphatic system. Tissues with lymphedema are at risk of infection.
It is most frequently seen after lymph node dissection, surgery and/or radiation therapy, in which damage to the lymphatic system is caused during the treatment of cancer, most notably breast cancer.
In this video, 1in9 Founder, Stephanie talks with Sherri and Christina Bernard about the use and fitting of the Lymphedema Sleeve 1in9 will be providing.
