Healing hands and healing bandagesSanford Health's lymphedema expertise helps Carson woman
“She is just a super dedicated patient,” Markovic said. “To be doing the garments every day and bandaging both legs every night for about four years now, I think really tells her success story. She’s amazing.” Fuchs lived in the country before her husband died in 2000 and never did like to drive much after moving to town. She prefers to walk almost everywhere—to the grocery store, bank, church and to visit neighbors, friends and “elderly people.”
Compression therapy is one component of Complete Decongestive Therapy offered at Sanford Health. This treatment started in Europe in the 1930s, Markovic said, but didn’t gain popularity in the United States until the late 1980s.
