Can Volleyball Be Done After Breast Cancer Surgery?
Can I take volleyball after breast cancer surgery?
Hello Silvia, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will answer your question.
There is no specific recommendation of exercise in post breast cancer surgery patients. But you should still be careful in your activities, especially if a new operation or surgical wound has not healed completely, because excessive movement can make the wound open again, or difficult to heal. In addition, the risk of trauma to the scar must also be taken into consideration.
My current suggestion is:
If the wound is still new, then avoid excessive activity first. Do light exercise first like jogging. In surgeries that I have long thought would not matter to you when you exercise again, but exercise should be adjusted to your current age. Control the doctor who operates you in accordance with the specified schedule. Avoid smoking, and drinking alcohol. That's all my answer, thank you very much :)
