I think it is bad that the impression is out there that if you don't have lots of nodes removed you're not at risk. Anyone who has even radiation is at risk.
Until you can see someone - keep your arm propoped up on a pillow when you are in bed or watching TV. Don't take hot baths or showers and try not to overuse your hand.
And, p.s., you look just fine without having to have your nails done!
