Care and comfort is a special consideration immediately after breast surgery. It’s usually the difference between a long drawn out rehabilitation and short best case recovery.
Compression garments like the one modeled above can be very beneficial for varying types of breast surgery. Designed to evenly compress the chest area and support the breast tissue, a compression garment may be helpful if you experience any of following common post surgery problems;
- Movement or shifting of tissue;
- Irritation due to sensitive scar tissue;
- The risk of lymphoedema;
- Post-surgical swelling, hematoma, and pain
We always recommend you discuss in detail your post breast surgery care and comfort needs with your doctor and we are always happy to answer any questions you may have.
Day 20 - Stop Procrastinating!!! A perfect task to start off the week! "Crossing something off your to do list will give you a sense of accomplishment and relief, especially if you’ve been putting a task off for ages" - Culture Trip. We all make up excuses for not doing certain things, especially on a Monday when we feel wake up feeling very sorry for ourselves. Well, not to do - whatever it is, just get it done. I am certain we will all feel a lot better afterwards... Maybe this little check list I found on the Designlovefest blog will be able to help (sorry that the quality isn't 100% but you get the gist!)
Have a fantastic start to the week everyone 😊 Only 10 more days of the happiness challenge left to go... Hope you are all feeling extremely positive! 💕 #TheFrangipaniTrust#breastcancerawareness#happy#mood#staystrong#staypostive#support#happinesschallenge#culturetrip#designlovefest#mondaymotivation#productive
In the study, Hyder and his colleagues implanted cells of a deadly, fast-growing human breast cancer, known as BT-474, into a specialized breed of mouse. Some of the mice were then treated with medroxyprogesterone acetate (MPA), a type of progestin commonly given to post-menopausal women. A control group did not receive MPA.
Later one group of MPA-treated mice was treated with apigenin. Cancerous tumors grew rapidly in the mice which did not receive apigenin. In the apigenin-treated mice, breast cancer cell growth dropped to that of the control group, and the tumors shrank. “We don’t know exactly how apigenin does this on a chemical level,” Hyder said. “We do know that apigenin slowed the progression of human breast cancer cells in three ways: by inducing cell death, by inhibiting cell proliferation, and by reducing expression of a gene associated with cancer growth. Blood vessels responsible for feeding cancer cells also had smaller diameters in apigenin-treated mice compared to untreated mice. Smaller vessels mean restricted nutrient flow to the tumors and may have served to starve the cancer as well as limiting its ability to spread.” Breast Cancer Effectively Treated with Chemical Found in Celery, Parsley by MU Researchers
