No, I don’t wear a compression sleeve. This is supposed to be my ‘good’ side! Lol. It isn’t lymphedema, not swollen at all. Just feels like the tissue is all hard and bumpy. Pretty sure it’s damage from chemo leaking into my arm, so there really isn’t anything that can be done other than giving it time.
