You could telephone all the clinics Pat mention in ie Singapore and Malaysia and explain the situation for them, see what they can offer and then you can make your decition and make a plan with the chosen place. I am sure you can make all the arrangements by e-mail.

I feel all excited for you :-) Good luck, please do keep us updated :-)

Celestine, there are on-line self-care videos at http://www.nwlymphedemacenter.org/ , but in-person help from a therapist is still the best bet, to be sure what you're doing is right for YOU. Still, if you look them over you'll know what the general process is and that can sure help you learn faster once you have a chance to see a therapist.
Thinking of you!

Dear Celestine,
sorry about that :( . I was hoping to buy one myself, but that's out of the question then. :(

Dear Cassie,

thank you so much for the info. i'm currently waiting for the full download of this video.
i'm still looking for the nearest therapist i can find to help me do it until i can do it by myself.

Lymphedema Girl, too bad they don't process overseas order huh... or perhaps they will one day... just hoping that one day isnt too far away.

xoxo

Hi Celestine,

how are you doing, did you go somewhere and have treatment?

Celestine,

Do you have access to a sterilized (chlorinated, saltwater, or UV treated) swimming pool? Swimming always seems FAR more effective for my leg lymphedema than any of the self-massage and even most visits to my occupational therapist for her professional mld treatment. Just a thought . . .
