Ericka got "compression garments" today. She'd been measured for these a few weeks ago and they were finally ready for her to pick up and try. They are basically heavy-duty elastic fabric that make up a set of socks, capri pants and thigh-high stockings. She mixes and matches these layers to provide compression for her legs to abdomen where her lymph flow is not what it should be. The idea is to provide the same kind of treatment we've been doing with the mummy wraps but in easy pull-on form. She can get mummy wraps on top of these if she needs it.
So we're hoping they help bunches and that they'll make it easier to keep the treatment going between clinic sessions. So far, they seem to be working well.
