CONCLUSION: The findings suggest that the real impact of living with lymphoedema is much more challenging than previously identified. The findings suggest that LVA can give a future of greater choice for some of its recipients, but further research should explore longer-term benefits. LVA could offer hope to some people with lymphoedema, but a realistic expectation is essential. PMID: 31958675 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
