After Surgery Through Chemotherapy & Treatment
American Cancer Society offers head wraps and wigs through the TLC Catalog.
Armpit Comfort Pillow
Your lymph node status is important – and will be determined by a sentinel node biopsy or an axillary lymph node dissection. Those procedures, while critical to your diagnosis and staging, leave tender scars in an area where you have plenty of nerves. Having a little pillow between your arm and chest can ease the pain of axillary and mastectomy incisions. Use a rounded or rectangular pillow to cushion your armpit area. You can add a shoulder strap to this pillow, so you don't have to carry it all the time.
Breast Support Pillow
After a lumpectomy or breast reconstruction, your breast may feel very tender. Having breast surgery changes the balance of weight on your chest muscles. Until you adjust to your new architecture, you might like to use a crest-shaped pillow to support your breast or your reconstruction, until the incisions heal and your muscles adjust. You can also use a crest-shaped pillow to comfort any underarm incisions
Safety Belt Pillow
After a lumpectomy, mastectomy, your chest area will be tender anywhere you have incisions. Use a small square or rectangular pillow to place between you and that upper-body seat belt. This comfort pillow will protect you from chafing, and will distribute the pressure on your chest. Add a Velcro loop on one side of the pillow, if you want to secure it to the seat belt while you travel in the car.
