Dreams Hotel, located a block away from lymphedema treatment center in San Juan, Puerto Rico offers an economical stay for treatment.
Lymphedema is an abnormal accumulation of fluid in the soft tissue due to a blockage in the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system helps fight infections and other diseases to carry lymph, a colorless fluid containing white blood cells throughout the body using a network of thin tubes called vessels. Small glands called lymph nodes filter bacteria and other harmful substances out of the liquid. However, when the lymph nodes are removed or damaged, lymphatic fluid builds up in surrounding tissues and causes swelling of these.
