Lymphedema 16 years after cancer

  • I have recenctly been told I have lymphedema and been told I can't get in to see the physical therapist until the 23rd of this month. Is there anything I can do to my arm to keep it from swelling up more? And my doctor was puzzled by the amount of pain running up my arm. Does anyone else have this problem? They eliminated blood clots, pinched nerves and bone problems. So at this point I am limited to only knowing that I have lymphadema. Nothing about how to make myself more comfortable. Any advice would be welcome.
