I ordered (for my mom long ago) from company -that CVS had fliers with information. Check with local pharmacy perhaps.

I see fliers all over for medical alert bracelets. I was hoping for some tips from the men and women on here that have bought them and found them to last longer than 1.5 years.

I purchased my bracelet fromhttp www.lymphnet.org/store. I have had mine almost 5 years. The plate is slightly scratched, but it is still readable.  Mary

Thanks for asking New Flower. They changed my appointment from a doctor doing her fellowship to a staff doctor (I am so happy about that).

We had to push out the appointment an extra month, but my local pulmonolgist said that was ok. I see him next week. A week from this Monday, I have breathing tests and a Lung CT scan then see him a few days later.

I can tell I have gotten a little worse, but really not that much. I am hoping this lovely high dose Prednisone and anti-biotic are doing their jobs.

The choices are for the right arm OR for both but not for the left arm.

The link I checked only listed right/both.  I have been looking for quite some time.

I am currently in contact with NLN to fix their omission of LE bracelets for the Left Arm option omission.

 

I called and left a voice message and sent them an email. As soon as I hear back from them that they have fixed the error I will make a post it under a new Topic here on CSN.
