Wedding ring sets were fashionable when we were married 29 years ago. But I wanted a plain gold wedding band, one which looked like a wedding ring, rather than the fashionable curved band with diamonds. I did later get an eternity ring with diamonds. Before I had my cancer surgery earlier this year I had my wedding band resized (I’d put on a kilo or 20 and it was tight). With post op swelling and then subclinical lymphoedema in my left arm post surgery (I had a bilateral mastectomy and lymph node clearance) it was too tight to wear anyway. Now, after being in a compression glove and sleeve for months, the ring fits again. Even though no one can see it, I like to wear it. And I’m glad now that I opted for the plain band since I wouldn’t risk stones and a setting with the glove.
