Leaving home this morning felt like arming up to battle. On my left upper arm is the 24hr blood pressure monitor and on the lower arm a splint for tendonitis. On my right is the pressure bandage for the lymphodema. It has a glove as well but I can hardly move my fingers when I wear it so I don’t.
I have not learnt to take a selfie so this one is a mirror image.
All this gear meant many trips to doctors, radiologist, hand specialist, hand therapist, physiotherapist and pathologist. This morning I ditched the blood pressure monitor that was tethered to a computer by a cable from my arm, around my neck and plugged in at my waist. Phew.
