Hello everyone. My physical therapist used a few tools on me, including a suction machine called a PhysioTouch. I looked in to purchasing one, because I feel it has done the most good for my Truncal LE. Well, the website says it isn’t available in the USA yet, but I did find there is going to be a small clinical trial, by the University of Michigan. Maybe somebody here can benefit from this.

Thx. I’ll be looking at this trial, sounds intriguing. I’ve got breast and trunk. Well the whole quarter side actually. Dang.

Mine is breast too. I’m telling you, this really worked for me. It made the lymph fluid move down into the rib area, which was painful for a few days. But, if you wear a compression top, like spanx, it should help.
