la la la la la la la la lymph

Saw The Lymph Lady today. Says my arm is better than last week. Also measured my unaffected arm to compare it with the affected one. Well, above the elbow my left arm is 1cm more than the same area on the right arm. That is a big difference. Funnily enough, there were some parts where my right arm was more than my left - cos it's the dominant arm, she said.
Not charmed that a 1 cm difference is regarded as doing brilliantly. Doing so brilliantly in fact that I now need see her only every second week, as opposed to every week.
I suppose I should be grateful I don't have lymphoedema and that the swelling is relatively minor.
