I loved my "old" therapist (had been released) but wasn't quite sure if she was "up" on things. My new therapist showed me how to self massage. I will be getting a sleeve for protection especially when I'm active. Will have a glove that goes right past the knuckles on my hand for flying. She told me to exercise my hand while flying.
So far mine is mild. I want to keep it that way. She also gave me the does and don'ts and be carefuls most of which I learned on this board thanks you Binney, you and others. Anytime I get the tiniest scratch on my affected arm I wash it and run for the antibiotic ointment and bandaid. I think we need some neat LE bandaids. LOL
