35 days bandaged

I just wrapped my arm again. It's been 35 days since the beginning of this lymphedema flare up and I still don't feel any closer to normal. I can manage for about 6 hours in my sleeve and glove, just enough time to accomplish some basic daily chores. Then my hand and elbow begin to really bother me and I tear the sleeve off and subject myself to the bandaging.

The PT is only available once a week for the next couple of weeks. I sure hope that's going to be enough to bring my hand and arm back to normal.

  1. Try not to get too discouraged. I have lived with lymphedema for 52 years, primary, both legs. Bandaging. ugh. I got a cancer diagnosis 1.5 years ago. I thought I had paid my dues. Guess not.
