In brief: pump recommendation

It is important to be sure that you truly have lymphedema, a diagnosis that is confusing for many doctors.
Unfortunately, the choice of pump is dependent upon what insurance you have and of course how severe the condition is. A certified lymphedema therapist and physician trained in lymphedema should be involved in your care to confirm the diagnosis and get you the best treatment.
