Incision care Small pieces of tape (called steri-strips) will remain over the incision site and may be removed 10 to 14 days after surgery. The incision should be kept clean and dry for one week after surgery. Therefore, we recommend sponge baths instead of showers the first week. You may bathe in a bathtub if you are able to keep the area dry. Look for redness and swelling, which may be signs of infection. Do not go swimming until you have discussed this with your surgeon at your follow-up appointment. Dr. Geeta Kadayaprath - Best Breast Cancer Specialist in Delhi
Follow-up Care After Breast Cancer Surgery You may be discharged from the hospital with an external drainage device in place. The drain will continuously remove fluid from a catheter at the surgery site into an external collection device. You will be responsible for emptying this collection device. Your nurse or health care provider will discuss how to care for your drain before you are discharged from the hospital. Dr. Geeta Kadayaprath - Best Breast Cancer Surgeon in Delhi
Another year comes to an end.... a year full of challenges, some met ....some transferred to the next year.Professionally, I made an important decision ... of focussing my energies at one centre instead of hopping between two. Now, I head the breast services at Max Cancer Centre, Patparganj, alone. I am able to be involved in the entire process of entry to exit of my patients with breast cancer.The Support Group meetings, the academic meetings, the surgical work, the post operative care, the process of auditing my own work to constantly improve the care, have taken off and I believe these are a few steps in the right direction.The endeavour to excel continues...... The new year beckons.....It will be 2015 in a few hours. Tomorrow will be the first Breast support group meeting of the year. The enthusiasm of my champions is all pervasive and we will, together, celebrate life with renewed vigor and new hopes.Breast cancer will be a forgotten word....smiles, chatter, dancing, eating, sharing and a sense of camaradarie will dominate proceedings. I am looking forward to it..All are welcome to join!!! For further details, please contact Dr Geeta Kadayaprath, Head, Breast Services, Max Cancer Centre, Patparganj, Delhi
SURGERY FOR BREAST CANCER IS NOT ABOUT REMOVING BREASTS, ALWAYS… When 32 year old Neena, an HR consultant in an MNC, walked into my clinic, accompanied by her husband and parents, I could sense an air of hopelessness surrounding this good looking young lady. The papers that were laid in front of me carried a needle biopsy report, which confirmed the diagnosis of breast cancer. Fortunately, for her, the size of the lump was about 2cms and there were no lymph nodes that I could feel in the armpit. There was no evidence of spread to the other organs on imaging. I soon realized she had been through the discussion of surgery and she had come to me for a second opinion. I soon found out why she had decided to come for a second opinion. She had been advised a modified radical mastectomy (complete removal of the breast along with the lymph nodes in the armpit). She was a successful career woman with everything going for her till yesterday and today she was grappling with this tough predicament- losing an organ, an integral part of her feminity to cancer- it was almost cruel!.......... ....To be continued.....watch this space for more.......
