If you are not back to full range of motion and pain free at this point, ask your provider for a referral to a rehab therapist (OT/PT). If there is still swelling at 6 weeks, request a referral to a lymphedema therapist.

Please remember that every body is unique. This is a GENERAL guideline. It is best to seek guidance from a rehab professional (OT/PT who specializes in top surgery rehab) and listen to your own body. If any recommendations are painful or cause negative symptoms, STOP! Discuss these guidelines with your surgeon as surgical protocols may vary.
