My arm is starting to swell along with my hand and fingers. I am finding it hard to do things with the baby cuz I can't bend my wrist and straighten my arm out all the way. I am pretty depressed about it. Is this Lymphedema? I hear you can't get rid of it..so I am just suppose to live with this pain now and not being able to move it right?My chemo nurse Friday said to try and hold the baby with my other arm and elevate it as much as possibe. Not sure what to do. Any advise would help.
Thanks a bunch...
