How does our lymphatic system work?

Swelling Solutions Offers Breast Cancer-Related Lymphedema Surveillance 

Catharine Burt RN, BScN, RMT, CDT has designed an early awareness program for individuals going through treatment for breast cancer. The PROACTIVE MEASURES PROGRAM is the first program in Ontario designed to help detect complications of breast cancer treatment early. Ideally, you would be seen before treatment begins for assessment of shoulder range of motion and limb circumference.  Our research grade BIA machine helps to assess fluid levels and body composition as you regain strength. Following you through treatment allows us to pick up on changes and give you education about lymphedema, getting ready for radiation treatments and identify complications that may need referrals to other healthcare professionals. Lymphedema, a chronic condition of swelling can occur anytime after treatment depending on your risk factors. However, research has shown that it occurs within the first two years after treatment. Therefore, we will assess anyone at anytime after treatment as well. The possibility of getting lymphedema can cause anxiety and lead some people to start wearing compression garments when they may not be needed. We help you to navigate through this decision and only recommend compression when the evidence tells us you need it. Contact Catharine Burt  for more information. (519) 749-0102
