Other Care Associated with Breast Cancer. Posted on October 11, 2011 View this journey (11 Experiences)

All of the surgeries and loss of muscle caused me to pull forward, so that I began to experience horrible pain from the bad posture. Many breast cancer patients who have surgeries have this problem, and it gets aggravated when one can't exercise post-surgery for a long time due to the drains, incisions, etc. I've developed cervical scoliosis of the spine; have worked with 3 different PT clinics--I'd work with one, then have another surgery, so stop. My insurance denied continued care (its very limited) at the same agency, but would approve it somewhere else. I also gave up for a while; the pain made it too difficult to exercise...I've restarted just now and hope I can get some help with the muscular tightness and hunchback I've developed.
