Has anyone here been successful in applying for AA because they need help getting compression stockings on and off
Im thinking of applying,have lots of trouble( due to Arthritis in hands and very weak arms due to CFS/ ME) pulling up my stockings from toes to top of thighs
( lympho and lipo in both legs and wearing thigh thighs that have a belt that goes thru each stocking and fastens round waist..very uncomfortably i must add,and the velcro v itchy.)
plus all the adjustments required to the stockings during the course of a days wear.
Just had a clinic appt where i asked for and was given a ' butler' to help me get my stockings on....but it still requires more dexterity and stamina than i have,to put my stockings on,even tho it does help. And doesnt solve prob of getting them off again.
Ive also been given some 'off the shelf thigh highs kept up with skin glue' stockings,which are easier to use,but i doubt they give the same help and support as the thick flat knit made to measures? But they are a dream to wear compared to the flat knits,tho still a bit of a tussle getting them on/ off.
Second question,do other folk find it a bit ' ouch' taking off glued stockings? Skin at top of thighs is quite tender. 🙄🙄🙄 sorry for all the moaning! X
