I've got a couple of exercise videos that seem to help with mobility and range of motion even when my arms are acting up and have to be babyed (babied? baby-ed? Is this even a word!) a bit more.
I have a question for everyone, too. It seems to me that I have more trouble with swelling when I don't get enough sleep, but maybe it's just that I'm crankier and more frustrated and my attitude just makes me think it's more swollen. (This condition does tend to do a number on my mind -- lymphedema-brain!) Has anybody else noticed this?
