For those who have completed treatment and are living into Survivorship you know that the post treatment phase comes with its own set of challenges. One of these is the risk of lymphoedema, a condition which can cause swelling, discomfort and carries a risk of infection in areas of the body which have been compromised by treatment.

Our very talented lymphoedema therapist Debbie is extremely well regarded in the community for her proficient treatment of current lymphoedema patients, and our lymphoedema prevention and monitoring program is equally important. It has been specifically designed and created to meet the monitoring needs of every individual who has been diagnoses with cancer.

By becoming part of our monitoring program, you will allow us to assist you in the prevention and or monitoring of acute future lymphoedema presentations. Using the latest SOZO technology – a digital health platform which allows precise monitoring of fluid levels in the body. This allows us to detect changes early and provide timely intervention to prevent the onset of lymphoedema.

Our prevention/detection program is the creation of our highly skilled multidisciplinary team of nurses, exercise physiology, physiotherapist and complex lymphatic therapist. The program includes the provision of education and empowering self-management techniques to help you maintain overall health and wellbeing.

Bloomhill Cancer Care monitoring program and Lymphoedema clinic is available to all newly diagnosed cancer patients through to those who are many decades into survivorship.
