  • Vicki Joice I'm so thankful for this community for lymphodema survivors...I've been dealing with mine now since last summer post surgery 3 weeks for breast cancer. I have it in my dominate hand and arm...Stinks!! I'm managing ok. I'm considering LVBS (surgery). I'm suppose to go back for a follow up with Dr. Lui in Illinois at the Cancer Treatment Centers of America to reassess my progress since my last Herceptin infusion in June '18. I've had all tests which at the time Dec.'17 my Dr. said I was a candidate. Now that several months have passed since my last treatment and I'm seeing reduced swelling overall, I am having second thoughts about going through with such an invasive surgery. There is no guarentee that Dr. Lui can improve anymore than what I am seeing now.! So confused! I just wish I knew how great the percentage (for me) to have the LVBS ....
