Hi everyone - I have mild lymphodema from axillary clearance and rads after Breast CA - its gradually developed, not enough preventative info given I think - and even tho I tried its gradually come on. So I was referred to local lymphodema people - LOVELY and v helpful - I have compression sleeve, and better instructions for care and prevention . But they didn't know what to say about saunas - of course its not a great idea as its in the same camp as not too much very hot weather as a risk factor...but if its for just a short time - what does anyone think? Then I thought of genius solution - wear two wine cooler sleeves on affected arm??!!! Any experiences gratefully received as I do love a sauna and would be sorry to not have them again. thanks very much Nicola
