I had LVA surgery on my left arm for secondary lymphedema 3 weeks ago. I am wearing a short stretch bandage since surgery which I never used before. I had immediate softening of the skin and decrease in size with even more decrease after 2 weeks. I have very deep wrinkles on the skin which I see when I take off the bandages to take a shower each day. Can anyone tell me if that is normal? I'm worried that the only reason my arm is smaller is because of being wrapped 23 hours a day and it will just swell or be worse when I go back to a compression sleeve.
