Patient of Mr Vasu Karri: This lady had longstanding lymphoedema of her left arm as a result of left breast cancer treatment. She was greatly troubled by the weight of her arm, had difficulty bending the elbow and wearing blouses.
She wore a compression sleeve but it was no longer effective in reducing the size of her arm. The oedema had become non-pitting in nature.
Mr Karri performed liposuction of her arm and reduced the size of the arm to match the other side. She was able to bend the elbow more easily and wear blouses comfortably.
Arm lymphoedema (lymphedema – US spelling) is a common complication after breast cancer treatment, affecting 1 in 5 (20%) patients. It has a significant negative impact on a patient’s quality of life.
