I can’t believe it’s been a year since my diagnosis and surgery. I finally got into physical therapy in October and have been going weekly to work on congestion under both arms, fascia and shoulder work. Slow but sure, I have a lot less pain in my ribs (front and back) and shoulders. In addition to doing all the stretching exercises, I have also been doing yoga (modified) and strengthening classes via zoom for breast cancer survivors. Here in Saskatchewan, Impower is a wonderful group that offers funding and free classes to breast cancer survivors.
So since I didn’t need chemo, radiation or hormone therapy, I was told to just go back to my family doctor for annual checkups. Well my first checkup is on the 20th and other than doing regular bloodwork, I’m at a loss what I should be asking her. Other than my ribs still hurting a year later, I feel fine.
