Mastectomy Post-Op Exercise Class
Getting back to 100 percent after a mastectomy can seem like a difficult task. The experts from Carle Therapy Services are here to help give you the tools you need to make a full recovery and get back to feeling like 'you' again.
This class will help you in your recovery by:
- Teaching simple exercises that will increase early mobility and improve function after surgery
- On-site demonstration of all exercises and handouts for at-home use
- Educating post-op mastectomy patients on techniques to avoid lymphedema
- Providing a group setting for the recovery process
Classes are held monthly on the second Wednesday and fourth Friday from 10:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. in the third floor conference room of Mills Breast Cancer Institute. Patients are encouraged to attend one class prior to surgery and one class post-surgery.
Classes are FREE and are open to both Carle and non-Carle patients. Call (217) 383-6636 to schedule your classes today.
This class is funded by a generous donation to Carle Center for Philanthropy.
