Female expats who require international healthcare services in their adopted home for breast cancer treatment have been warned to expect certain side effects of surgery.
New findings published by the British Journal of Cancer on behalf of the Recovery Study Group show there can be severe pain in the immediate aftermath of breast cancer surgery.
It noted that there have been few studies on this topic in the past, making the latest discoveries relatively groundbreaking.
Of 338 women who were studied, those who had preoperative pain were three times more likely to suffer from movement-evoked pain in the first week after going under the knife.
In conclusion, the study found that there are several issues women will have to deal with after surgery, including pain for seven days, but identifying those at risk prior to their operations could have a positive effect on the recovery of breast cancer survivors.
