Haven't posted in a while as been on holiday and generally enjoying myself!! Arm was great on flight out and while I was away, the temperature started to soar on our last few days and I did have some minor swelling by the time I got home but that settled in a few days.
I'm waiting for the 3 month mark to see if I can reduce compression. My hand is definitely much better, the upper arm is still variable but overall better (always softer and more good days) than before. Typically we're having one of the hottest summers ever here so it's definitely being tested!
In other good news I can get my hair in a clip now which has made me very happy (little victories!!!)
Happytrisha - I'm confused?! I'm presuming your arm is bigger or more swollen than the other side ?? Did Dr Chang do the scan or just look at the pictures? When I had my scan the surgeon talked me through each bit as he was seeing it, he took some pictures at the time as a matter of record but I don't think they look that clear. Anyway hope you get the answers you're looking for.
Mjsgumbas: glad you had a good holiday too!
