Learning About Breast Cancer
I just had a Diep 2 months ago. Yes, make sure you are in shape as best you can this does help. I didn't think I needed someone there after my surgery but, now I wish I would have let my sister be there, because for some reason it hit me hard.
Anyway, it is a little tougher than getting the mastecomey because they are cutting the muscle. I started slowing walking, the docter said this is great for blood flow since I couldn't do any upper exercise.
Good luck and keep your family and friends close by
