“Hello to all the Veterans out there: I had a Light bulb moment today! My wife and I had an appointment to be fitted for a pair of compression socks (compliments of the obstetrics and orthotics dept. @ the V.A. hospital La Jolla Ca.)I was was greeted and waited on in a timely manner by the kindest woman in the whole city of San Diego ” Sydel ” and not only was she an outstanding professional and knew her craft well, she ‘s B E A U T I F U L too! Wait…. Here’s the life changing light bulb moment. Once I was fitted with a unbelievably great looking pair of compression socks (black was my choice of color among a variety of colors to choose from), I was holding back the tears of joy, from the amazing instantaneous soothing and comfortable leg and ankle relief I felt immediately 5 – 10 seconds after being properly measured and properly fitted for the first time in my entire life!!! We’re talking Volkswagen – Rolls Royce not an exaggeration. My fellow veterans and brothers at arms tell your Primary care physician to stop giving you those dreadful tight ugly compression socks that are currently basic standard issue, trade in that Subaru for a Bentley and you will never ever regret it! My feet and my legs have actually been pain free for the first time in many years. Guys pay attention to detail, ” Treat Yourself ” stop ” Cheating Yourself ” As american soldiers we deserve the best our country can buy for us! Don’t procrastinate! Don’t hesitate! San Diego Homecare Supplies, they’re compassionate and considerate to all that walk through their door. Heaven must be missing an Angel…because I met one of them today! ” Sydel Howell ” God speed to the entire staff as well…..Mel & Julita Carpenter” read more
Lymphedema Therapy and Medical Supplies
Lymphedema supplies help with the treatment of buildup of excess lymph fluid, can occur as a side effect of cancer surgeries and radiation treatments. If you are diagnosed with lymphedema, it can be helpful to address it in several ways; including compression garments, bandages, and exercise. We carry daytime and nighttime options from manufacturers like Medi, Juzo, Sigvaris, Jobst, Solaris and JoviPak. You may also benefit from a compression camisole or compression bra such as those from Belisse, Wear Ease, Anita and Amoena. Please make an appointment with our fitters to discuss your needs and options.
Skin reactions are also not unusual side effects of cancer treatments and sometimes lymphedema. It’s important to discuss possible effects of your treatment with your doctor, because early intervention is the best way to help prevent the condition from getting worse. You’ll find creams to help prevent scarring, soothe skin following radiation treatments, and gentle, wash-off adhesive to use with prostheses.
