🌟 VERY IMPORTANT 🌟
If you are preparing for a mastectomy, and plan to purchase a chest pillow, PLEASE continue reading... It has come to my attention that there is someone out there selling a mastectomy chest pillow with an ICE PACK. PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS PILLOW! Using an ice pack after a mastectomy is a HUGE NO NO!!! This person has not had breast cancer, or a mastectomy, and so therefore does not know this is VERY dangerous. While I am a little offended that it is a copy of my pillow, I am way more concerned that it could actually hurt you. The instructions from my surgeon is very clear to not use an ice pack for pain or swelling. I have included paperwork from the hospital I had my mastectomy. PLEASE SHARE THIS POST WITH ANYONE WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM THIS INFORMATION. Or tag them in the comments so they see this.
And always, please read the instructions from your surgeon carefully to see what is okay after your surgery so that you will have the best success in healing. One small thing can make a huge difference to your health. You can get the information from your Doctor before your surgery to help you prepare ahead of time. And always feel free to email me with any questions! As a breast cancer, and mastectomy survivor, I have been through it and am willing to share any of my experience with you to help you! 💗Leslie
