How to use the Lymphedema Guide

01

Make sure you have a diagnosis of lymphedema from your treating physician (e.g., family doctor, phlebologist, dermatologist, oncologist) and a complete prescription for decongestive therapy and compression garments.

02

Choose a therapist from the Certified therapists section (p. 6-12) and complete the entire cycle of decongestive therapy with bandages.

03

Choose a compression garment fitter from the Products & Services section (p. 16-20) to take measurements. Wear your bandages 24/7 until your compression garment is delivered.

04

Benefit from RAMQ financial support through your fitter or by submitting your own application (p. 21).

05

After delivery of the garment: you have 10 working days to notify the fitter of any discomfort. Consult your therapist again for a follow-up.

06

For questions or help, call the LAQ at 1 866 979-2463.
