Breast Surgery

Unfortunately, many women devote so much time, energy and courage to simply getting through breast cancer surgery that they often neglect their recovery plan. A proper recovery plan requires attention to psychological, mental, and physical healing. If women are able to regain control of their physical recovery, it will indirectly affect the other components in the recovery plan. In addition to lymphedema, various other physical problems may arise after breast cancer surgery. These problems will vary depending upon the woman, the specific type of surgery and the reconstruction efforts. Through the aide of a specially trained physical therapist, women should be able to recognize, treat and control these different physical problems and allow them to take control of their physical recovery.
