  • <p class="seamTextPara"> You will receive periodic screening with L-dex for 3 years following surgery. If you develop lymphedema, you will be randomly assigned to 1 of 2 groups: </p> <p class="seamTextPara"> <i class="seamTextEmphasis">Group 1: Standard of Care</i> </p> <ul class="seamTextUnorderedList"> <li class="seamTextUnorderedListItem">Wear compression sleeves and gloves, daily, for 1 month</li> <li class="seamTextUnorderedListItem">L-dex measurement, weekly </li> </ul> <p class="seamTextPara"> <i class="seamTextEmphasis">Group 2: Experimental</i> </p> <ul class="seamTextUnorderedList"> <li class="seamTextUnorderedListItem">Manual Lymphatic Drainage, 3 times per week, for 1 month</li> <li class="seamTextUnorderedListItem">Wear compression sleeves and gloves, daily, for 1 month</li> <li class="seamTextUnorderedListItem">L-dex measurement, weekly</li></ul>
  • <ul class="seamTextUnorderedList"> <li class="seamTextUnorderedListItem">Lymphedema is a common side effect after breast cancer surgery. </li> <li class="seamTextUnorderedListItem">It causes pain and swelling in the hands and arms. </li> <li class="seamTextUnorderedListItem">L-Dex is a portable system that uses a small electrical current to detect the build up of lymphatic fluid before it begins to cause side effects. </li> <li class="seamTextUnorderedListItem">Patients who develop lymphedema will be randomized to receive one of two treatment plans for breast cancer-related lymphedema.</li></ul>
