How long will the treatment phase take?

Each individual is unique, and so is their lymphedema. Depending on the stage of your lymphedema, the severity, your compliancy and the presence/absence of co-morbidities and perpetuating factors a typical treatment phase of treatment will last from 2 to 4 weeks. However, this is a generalization and it cannot be emphasized enough that each person must be evaluated separately, and each case must be evaluated separately.
