Thank you. Can't believe it can be more painful than using my arms 🙂
Do you know if the readings from a calf measurement are equivalent to arm readings, or do they have to be adjusted?
I had lymph node clearance at the same time as my WLE, and have been told no needles or blood pressure measurements on that arm.
During my chemotherapy I developed a blood clot in my other arm, and it hasn't gone. They have now stopped anticoagulant treatment, telling me that if it hasn't gone by now it isn't going to go.
So my question is, which arm should they use to take my blood pressure? The lymphedema clinic tell me it is more dangerous to use the arm with the clot, but my gp says not to use the arm with no lymph nodes. Has anyone else had this problem?
Thanks for any advice.
