another lymphedema update

Saw my physiotherapist today. Good news. We have reversed the problem in the upper arm.

It does mean that I continue to wear the compression garments daily and for extended periods ~ from when I’m up to when I go to bed.

I had a really bad time the week after my last physio ~ definite building of fluid contributing to aching and pain as well as a tough time with wearing the sleeve due to the pressure build up.

My physio says that the measurements are “normal” and that the feel of the arm is soft, not indicating any fluid accumulation.

Oh yipee, oh yeah!
