Hey Irene :D

There are all kinds of exercise you can do, based on your individual medical situation and the state of your lymphedema.

Take a look at our exercise page:

LOL...if you can't swim, just splish-splash :wink:

here's a page that might be interesting:

I sooooo love to swim, I wish there was even one safe river or lake in this are to swim in.

It's always amazing to see the difference in my legs from swimming.

Hi, my lymphedema therapist said to try gentle yoga. I walk also and that helps the most. I want to try swimming since the cool water and repetitive motion must be calming,
