The new compression garment is so much better for my arm. So much so that I can now go without my sleeve for a day without any repercussions!!
I’m still pushing it by trying for a second day ~ and if I do go for a second day, I do have heaviness and some tingling in the arm, which is a sure sign that fluid is collecting. But there is no outright pain.
Note: this is based on general day-to-day activities, not with any exercise. I wouldn’t dare go out for a walk or hike without the garment.
