Research & Benefits
We all know the benefits of regular exercise: It helps us stay fit, relieves stress and builds both strength and self-confidence. For all these reasons, women who have had breast cancer surgery should consider a regular exercise routine. Whether recovering from a lumpectomy or mastectomy, sentinel node biopsy or axillary node dissection, exercise will make you stronger. In fact, the post-op exercises demonstrated in Chapters One and Two of the Strength & Courage program are vital to helping resume full range of motion, strength and daily functions, especially after axillary node dissection.
