Benefits of Compression for lymph build

Once your extremity has been decongested of the lymph built up, then you can wear a compression garment during the day and softer padded garments at night to keep the fluid moving so it does not build up again.  This is done after the  decongestive phase has been completed.  Usually about two weeks for an arm  and a month for a leg.
