I finished chemo and radiotherapy treatment after breast cancer over 2 years ago now. Kept covered up with long-sleeved blouses since then when in the sun. With the heat we have been having recently, I would like just to wear short sleeves as the compression sleeve makes me so hot. The problem is, although I will use high protection sun cream, I will have one arm with a slight tan and the other still pale if I go out in the evening without the sleeve on!! I know this may seem a petty issue to some of you who have lymphoedema much worse than me but it is an issue for me. Anyone got any suggestions?
