Naomi,

Thanks so much for this article. I would like to add that Kathryn Schmitz, Phd did an outstanding research study on strength training for breast cancer survivors, with and at risk of lymphedema, at the University of Pennsylvania. You can read about the PAL Trial in both the New England Journal of Medicine and JAMA. More information regarding the study can be found at http://www.penncancer.org/physical-activity-and-lymphedema/index.cfm
In good health...
