Ingerp - I had 23 lymph nodes removed (1 affected) in January 2017. I have lymphedema in my hand and arm. So far I am able to keep it under control by wearing a compression sleeve and glove. Lately, I have been able to just have kiniesiology tape on my arm so I alternate the KT and the compression sleeve and glove. My diet and exercise plays a big part in keeping the LE in check, too. It's a whole new lifestyle because LE can become an issue at any time.
I like the Elyn Jacobs website for natural methods of cancer prevention. Elynjacobs.com
Supplements that I take: Evening Primrose Oil, Fish oil, Multi-vitamin, DIM, Vit D3, Vit C, CoQ10, Tummeric with Pepperine, Magnolia Bark extract, and baby aspirin.
That said, I cannot supply documented research on any of the above that any of what I do works, and none of it is supported by the AMA. So I figured I would add that little disclaimer before someone else starts hammering away about how some or most of this is not proven.
Edited to say: some of the supplements I take are for conditions that I am genetically inclined for, not cancer. Cancer was not on the radar until recently so I have it added to my list of ailments to try to prevent.
