What To Expect After Breast Surgery


Next »


What to expect after breast surgery depends on whether you have a lumpectomy (a removal of part of a breast) or a mastectomy (a removal of the breast).

Let family and close friends know that even after your body heals from surgery, your mind and heart need more time to heal. Talk to them about the emotions you feel.

It helps to share your emotions with other breast cancer survivors one-on-one and/or in a support or self help group.
