Dear Adel
Thank you for your question regarding lymph node transplantation. This is a very new type of treatment for lymphoedema, however, it would appear that not all patients will be able to undergo this type of treatment. You are advised to find a "plastic and reconstructive surgeon" who performs this type of procedure to assess your mother to determine whether she is a candidate for this procedure. The current cost involved in this type of procedure is not known.
I would like to wish your mother well and trust that she will be a suitable candidate to improve her quality of life. Suffering with lymphoedema is not easy. (MCH).
