“Service when it counts. Taking care of my handicapped mother has proven to be a learning experience for me. With high blood pressure, arthritis, diabetes and recent knee surgery, her mobility is very limited. When I visited San Diego Homecare Supplies, they were very helpful and patient. Many of their recommendations have helped to make my mother’s life a lot less strenuous and much more comfortable. I highly recommend their services. They are patient and very knowledgeable regarding medical equipment and the needs of the handicapped.” A.R. 11/29/2004
Lymphedema Therapy and Medical Supplies
Lymphedema supplies help with the treatment of buildup of excess lymph fluid, can occur as a side effect of cancer surgeries and radiation treatments. If you are diagnosed with lymphedema, it can be helpful to address it in several ways; including compression garments, bandages, and exercise. We carry daytime and nighttime options from manufacturers like Medi, Juzo, Sigvaris, Jobst, Solaris and JoviPak. You may also benefit from a compression camisole or compression bra such as those from Belisse, Wear Ease, Anita and Amoena. Please make an appointment with our fitters to discuss your needs and options.
Skin reactions are also not unusual side effects of cancer treatments and sometimes lymphedema. It’s important to discuss possible effects of your treatment with your doctor, because early intervention is the best way to help prevent the condition from getting worse. You’ll find creams to help prevent scarring, soothe skin following radiation treatments, and gentle, wash-off adhesive to use with prostheses.
