I iced and elevated my arm all day with some diminution in swelling so decided to go swim. Unfortunately, it swelled again after practice. I spent the night elevating it and bought a compression sleeve today. I decided not to swim today since swimming makes it worse. I swam with two docs in my lane and their best guess is some lymphatic blockage that did not show up on the scan. I just really hope that this is a temporary and isolated incident and that I can swim next weekend. Definitely stressed out about this.

    It sounds really scary, and I know from my mom's experience that lymphedema can be uncomfortable. The good news is that if it's lymphedema the compression sleeve should help. Good luck!

    That sounds scary for sure. Please take care of yourself.

    If it is lymphedema there are PTs who specialize in the massage of the lymphatic system and can help with the swelling. Take care!
