So...had SLNB as part of BC surgery. Now got approx 13% swollen fingers, hand and forearm on my dominant right side. Got some fetching compression garments. MLD is not offered by NHS for 'mild' cases yet is said by some to be an important part of treatment.
I'm young and hopefully have decades in front of me which I'll have to mainly self manage this (if the cancer or something else doesn't get me). So understandably I want to get the swelling down as much as poss and try to keep it that way. It worries me that I'll lose more function in my hand.
Have any of you with mild L of the hand had MLD? How often did you have it? How much did it reduce the swelling by? How long did it take to work? Was it part of CDT? So many questions!
£50 a go is so expensive -I don't know how I'd pay for it. I definitely need to know if it's works or not. Thanks everyone.
