Open up!

I have just read a post in a big Lymphedema forum about the importance of opening up the lymphatic system in the abdominal region before using a Lymphedema pump, so the fluid being pumped away from the affected area is being lead away properly and doesn't "strand" and cause lymphedema in the genitals. Apparently a great number of people have developed genital Lymphedema by pumping away, not opening up first! I have never done that myself (opened up), but will sure do it from now on!
