Wearing compression arm sleeves is the most important approach to treating breast cancer lymphedema. The removal of individual lymph nodes or group of lymph nodes can cause complete or partial interruption of the axillary lymphatic system. This will increase the fluid accumulation in the arm tissue.
The compression arm sleeve has graduated compression that will help with venous return and decrease the weight of the arm. Therefore wearing the sleeve will help one to carry out everyday tasks a lot more easily and will enable one to be more productive.
