A client is suffering from drastic lymphadenapothy in his legs. I know water exercise has been used for Breast Cancer survivors to decrease lymphadenapothy is there a similar treatment for legs? Where can I find more information about this? Thank you!
Response from Dr. Henry
Swelling in the legs can be due to a range of problems (vascular,lymphedema, kidney, liver, heart, nutrition, etc). Your client's HIV doc generally would evaluate the swelling to confirm if it is limited to lymph nodes or involves other structures. Treatment options vary according to the most likely cause. If it is only the lymph nodes that are swollen then looking into why there is swelling may point in the direction treatment may go. KH
