Getting back to 100 percent after a mastectomy can seem like a difficult task. The experts from Carle Therapy Services are here to help give you the tools you need to make a full recovery and get back to feeling like your old self. This class will help you in your recovery by:
- Teaching simple exercises that will increase early mobility and improve function after surgery.
- On-site demonstration of all exercises and handouts for at-home use.
- Educating post-op mastectomy patients on techniques to avoid lymphedema.
- Providing a group setting for the recovery process.
Classes are held monthly on the second Tuesday from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. or the fourth Wednesday from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the third floor conference room of Mills Breast Cancer Institute. Patients are encouraged to attend one class prior to surgery and one class post-surgery. Classes are open to both Carle and non-Carle patients.
