First of all I'd like to say what a great site this is, everyone is so helpful, friendly and supportive, thank you. I wasn't sure whether to tag this on to my other post so apologies if I should have down that rather than start a new post. My son is going on a school trip shortly that he's very excited about. He'l be away for 5 days and it involves quite a bit of water sports. It only occurred to me yesterday that he will be wearing a wetsuit and now I'm concerned that it will act as a tourniquet, especially around his right lower leg and foot which remains quite swollen (left foot also swollen but not as bad as right). I'm already worried about him going away and have organised to meet with the teachers and TA's who are going, so that I can describe what they need to look out for. I don't want this condition to limit his life in any way but a wet suit only works if it fits tightly. Has anyone come across this problem, can he wear a wetsuit, any and all advice greatly appreciated. Many thanks.
