Are there other wraps besides farrows? Mine leave indents here and there in my legs and I don't think that should be. Are there any 1-piece wraps that give different compression as they go up the leg? I have been wearing them for 5 years, now on my 2nd pair. I do not see a need to buy them every three months and that is too costly for me.
ANY OTHER WRAPS BESIDES FARROWS?: Are there other wraps... - LSN
I also have Juxta wraps which I find are a total pfaff to put on.
Personally I like the farrow wraps given the choice ,but that does provide you with another option.
Do you have compression garments at all ?
Yes I do find the occasional indent as I have a lot of water retention .
I am not overly bothered about this .I am awaiting new compression garments to include upper leg wraps so are not in a position yet to comment on their effectiveness.But I really hope they work.
Do you find tey dont stay in position ?
At the moment I have coban dressings on upper leg and find that approx 2 hours after they have been dressed the dressings have slid down.,so just hoping for more success with the new garments.
I have been on the Juxta Fit wraps for about 18 months now, lower leg, thigh and bandaging on the feet. My only problem has been with the thigh wraps - I have, on both legs, a huge swelling just above the inner side of the knee. We have tried and tried to find a way that the wrap could accommodate this ''bulge'', but all it is doing at present is compressing the lymph in that area - leaving me with a solid and uncomfortable mass! Not pleasant and gives me a very strange looking walk!
The lower leg and feet work well and I find that if I have a comfortable stocking on under the wraps, they don't slip at all. I also use K-lite cotton wool bandage as a base on my feet - stops rubbing and blisters forming. Also lovely an warm in Winter - but hell in Summer. Hope this helps?
Anyone with an opinion on how I could manage the ''unsightly bulge'' around my knees - please feel free to post advice.
Not wrapped at the moment as STILL struggling to clear this infection after 6 weeks of all sorts of treatment. Will put details of my new regime in letter to 'Completely'.
