Breast Cancer and Lymphedema
I finished radiation 2 weeks ago. Today, my hand started swelling. I see my doctor on Monday. In the meantime, I have a question...Am I supposed to avoid elevating my arm when wearing my compression sleeve, or should I wear it when elevating? I am not clear on this. I have not been diagnosed with lymphedema. So far, I have just been wearing the sleeve as a preventive measure. I don't want to make it any worse in the next few days.
Thanks a bunch!
