Surgery can cause:
- Significant connective tissue damage
- Blood vessel damage
- Lymphatic vessel damage
- Fluid balance disruption
What happens to my body post surgery?
After surgery the lymphatic pathways will be very different. Studies have shown that it takes between seven and ten days for the natural and functional continuity of the lymphatic vessels to be re-established. During that time your body will not be able to function as it did before and that is why many of these post surgery symptoms occur. Lymphatic drainage massage promotes tissue regeneration therefore reducing the formation and severity of scars which can be unsightly and sometimes painful. One of the most significant benefits of doing lymphatic drainage post surgically is to prevent or alleviate edema or swelling. Swelling can cause pain and create a predisposition to infection.
What is your Lymphatic System and WHY is it Important?
The lymphatic system is a network of tissues and organs that help rid the body of toxins, waste and other unwanted materials. The primary function of the lymphatic system is to transport lymph, a fluid containing infection-fighting white blood cells, throughout the body. The lymphatic system primarily consists of lymphatic vessels, which are similar to the veins and capillaries of the circulatory system. The vessels are connected to lymph nodes, where the lymph is filtered. The tonsils, adenoids, spleen and thymus are all part of the lymphatic system.
The importance of this system and its connection with many vital organ plays a huge role in why you want to start activating it and return it to normal function as soon as possible through lymphatic drainage massages.
