And I am fine. Thank you to those who inquired after my health. I promise to update if my current good condition changes.
I flew from Toronto to Paris and back. The flight was 7 1/2 hours. Before I left I needed to deal with the lymphedema warning I got after surgery. Thank you to all the people who gave me their advice and told me their experiences!
My oncologist and family doctor finally got back to me hours before I left. The oncolgist said not to wear a sleeve, and my doctor said to wear one. So I chose not to. I took off my ring, and kept an eye on my hand, elbow and arm. I also tried to raise my arm during the flights, as inconspicuously as possible. I had no swelling, and weeks later my arm is fine.
I wish you all the best in your tough journey and that your future is full of good dreams that you never even knew you had.
