HEALING SURGICAL SCARS

Great alternative options - silicone scar sheets! Often times the plastic surgeons will recommend a silicone based solution but it can be expensive and not meant for everyone's budget. Here are a few other budget friendly options that are just as effective.

TAPE MEASURE

As we know 1/5 breast cancer patients can get Lymphedema. A tape measure will help you keep track of your girth measurements each month. Make sure you work with a Certified Lymphedema Therapist to show you the correct technique in obtaining your measurements.

RESISTANCE TRAINING

Therabands, Power Blocks & Dumbbells

While working with a Certified Lymphedema Therapist you will get to a point in your care where resistance exercises are introduced. Here are some tried and true brands used in clinic that you can purchase to help continue your exercises at home.  The therabands with handles are my preferred style as you will not have to wrap the loose band around your hand. If you are wrapping the band around your hand, it can compression your lymph system, something you ideally should be avoiding as a lymphedema risk reduction practice.

OVER THE DOOR PULLEY'S SYSTEM

Stretching is essential after surgery, especially to prevent cording (aka axillary web syndrome). Here is a trusted product I use in clinic that you can purchase for home use.

Personally, I love them for a little extra flavor but I typically add 1/2 to 1 packet to my 40 oz water bottle.
