Re: Have l been foolish?

Hi Flossie13 - thank you for this information - I've just ordered myself one - they're a great idea for when you're out for the day or on holiday especially if you're out on your own. I've also shared with my May 2017 warriors!

Hi, you can buy green bracelets from the Lymphoedema Support Network shop. It says that your arm is at risk from lymphoedema and injections, blood pressures etc should be avoided. It’s like a hospital wrist band.

I contacted the physiotherapist.He said the technique he used improves the lymphatic flow. However in viewof the bruising l will not have it done again, and will never again do anything medical without wearing my green bracelet to remind me of being careful.

Hi Over70

 

Why not ask one of our specialists?  You can call the free Helpline, 0808 800 6000 or post in the Ask Our Nurses area of the Forum.

Have l been foolish?

I have been using crutches and developed triceps tendinitis. Yesterday l had physiotherapy that involved massage. To day l have a big red  bruise. Have l put my arm at risk?. Had mastectomy and snb biopsy 15 months ago. I was in pain , did give the physio a full medical history but forgot to ask about lymphoedema.

Any advice please
