I learned a few things about breast surgery last week out of necessity.
In short, from my personal experience, here is what you need to know may happen post breast surgery:
- You will need to rebuild your lung capacity.
- You will need to take steps to prevent lymphedema.
- Before surgery, you should go over any allergies with the entire hospital team to ensure you do not have post surgery allergy issues.
- BONUS! I didn’t cover this in the video but you should familiarize yourself with JP drains before surgery so you are prepared.
Watch my video for details:
A huge thank you to my amazing husband, Shane, for being my knight in shining armor through this entire experience.
I feel great and all is well!
