Which do you use, which do you like better and why?
Since I've gotten good results with my FlexiTouch as my hand gets back to close to 'normal' my gloves are cutting in (causing pain) between the 2 middle fingers - I'm weird and there is webbing there (if that doesn't make sense I'll try to explain better). After looking at the pictures, I'm thinking that a guantlet might be better as it doesn't go between fingers. Talked to my Lymphedemologist (certified) a little while ago. He's a bit unsure about rather or not a guantlet is going to be a better idea as he's concerned that I won't have compression in fingers but then swelling in fingers, while there has been minor, has never been bad.
Anyway I'll see him a week from Monday and it kind of sounds like he's going to order me a gauntlet but also a new glove if they can make it to accomadate my webbing. All my gloves are custom so good chance they might be able to do it. Personally I'm thinking I'll like the gauntlet better but if he wants me to have a glove too then that's fine - it's up to him to order what I get.
So experiences/thoughts please!
