The NormaTec Via Series in Action

Lymphedema Management

I was diagnosed with melanoma in the fall of 2011. I had a total of five surgeries and ultimately had all of my lymph nodes dissected from my groin in March of 2012. I was left with significant lymphedema in my left leg. The pain and swelling almost cost me my career. From the first treatment with NormaTec there was a profound difference in my leg. In the first two weeks the circumference of my leg was down over 2 ½ inches. Most importantly the pain in my leg was almost completely gone. The second greatest effect was that for the first time in over a year I could sleep through the night. Today my legs are almost the same size and friends and family can genuinely tell the difference.
