advice re: flat knit sleeves and gloves
Hi, all, I've mainly been lurking, but have been finding this group so helpful. Thanks for all the great info and support everyone gives each other. My lymphedema has been fairly mild but I've been dealing with a flareup, and my PT think I may need to move to a garment that's more containing than my Medi Harmony, which I've ben using for 3 years.Besides, the glove has been giving me trouble
My issue: I'm very petite, and have short arms, and very sensitive skin, especially in the webbing area between my thumb and index finger. This has been a problem with the Medi, though it's worked well otherwise until now. I've been wondering if anyone else has had those issues and found a custom flat knit sleeve and glove that works for you? (fortunately, my new insurance covers one set!) I know some brands offer a silk lining in their sleeves and gloves. Might those work for me? One Juzo glove mentions a "comfort patch" for the thumb area, but I'm not sure what that is.
Any thoughts, comments, experiences, suggestions would be most welcome!
