Questions and Good News
Okay, so part of the deal with the BioConcepts garments is that with a custom garment the therapist needs to specify the compression. Eh???
Gretchen called HER certification instructor and asked for recommendations for pressure for a 4yo and the instructor asked, "Going with the Elvarex or BioConcepts?" and then gave her a pressure recommendation (which I've already forgotten). It seemed to ease G's mind a lot that her instructor was familiar with the brand I've chosen to try and had good things to say about it for a pedi patient. That's the good news.
We're going to measure for her garments next week on Wednesday at our regular appointment. G has asked us to be uber uber compliant this week to try get her reduction down as much as we can before we measure. We've also decided to go for the toe glove option. We're going to give it a try so that we don't have to wrap her toes under the stocking (her toes are very involved, poor kiddo).
I understand the theory, but... We (ok, *I*) am not known for my stellar compliance. So if we push it to the limit this week, measure, and then backslide, will the garments no longer fit? Cuz if so, seems like we might want a tad bit of wiggle room. But, hey, that's prolly why I'm not the therapist.
