Some of the ladies in my chemo group and surgery group have mentioned having (or needing to get) sleeves, but none of my doctors have said anything about it. I know one of the "risky" things, though, is flying. Since I am scheduled to fly to New York next week, I asked my lymphedema specialist about it. She said she definitely recommends me wearing one for travel, even though I don't show any signs of lymphedema.
I went to the local medical supply store and they showed me several different kinds, starting with the generic beige:
In the end, I went with one that is pretty but understated (in my opinion):
I'm supposed to go back to the medical supply store today to have them fit me for a sleeve and order one if they don't have it in stock. However, their prices were way higher than what I found online, so I had Hubby measure my arm and ended up ordering one from a web site specializing in lymphedema items. It is supposed to ship today, so hopefully I'll have it before we leave next Tuesday.
