I'm still working on the new website. Most of the posts (including artworks, blog posts and 365 posts from 2009, 2010 and 2011) are missing. These posts will return eventually. Thanks for your patience!
I didn't even know this existed, compression (arm) sleeves. I also have lipedema in both arms and would really like to do something about it. I can't do much about it. But I have been thinking about this. After all, I got compression stockings for my legs, and I kept wondering, that when I got the new compression pantyhose, if I could ask them to take my compression stockings and make those smaller so I could use them for my arms.
Last week I visited the Kousenzorg (compression garment contact person) and I just asked about this, kinda unsure but I had to know. I was afraid they would laugh (I had no idea there were compression arm sleeves!) but they didn't laugh. In fact they thought it was a pretty good question. And they showed me some examples.
Obviously I need to have the okay from my dermatologist. So we needed to make an appointment there. And we did. The dermatologist approved it so now I have to go back and make an appointment at the Kousenzorg. I hope I can have the sleeves in a couple of weeks!
