About 16 months ago my friend got 2nd & 3rd degree burns on her Rt arm (anterior side only), starting at the hand up to her shoulder, then to her upper back. She is completely healed, with lots of scaring and circulatory issues in that arm, which is managed well with compression wraps.
Anyways, she really wants to play volleyball but doesn't know if she can. I keep telling her to ask her doctor, but she hasn't yet! SO, I'm trying to get as much info as I can about long term care for severe burn injuries.
Should she play volleyball?
What are the risks and what are the signs and symptoms of those risks?
Could she use some kind of padding?
Any information you can give me would be WONDERFUL!
