Post-surgical oedema is common

Post-surgical oedema is common. Oedema occurs as a result of the cytokine response. They play a role in initiating the inflammatory response which activates the growth and healing factors. Cytokines are important for the healing process, and an integral part of the body’s immune system.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a series of gentle massage movements that promote fluid shifts from oedemic areas and unblock lymph nodes, aiding the removal of toxins and waste products and encouraging natural, healthy healing after surgery. MLD is highly recommended by surgeons to assist in the healing process, and Lymphatic Care offers a six-week treatment plan for post-surgical oedema.
