Breast Cancer Treatment Preparation: The Supply Lowdown
Advancing age can raise your loved one's risk for skin breakdown and pressure sores. In addition, pre-existing medical conditions such as diabetes and immobility can further heighten this risk. Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to reduce this risk. One effective intervention to help decrease the incidence of decubitus ulcers is to purchase or rent a pressure sore treatment rotation mattress system. Here are some ways this medical mattress can help your loved one prevent skin problems.
When my mother was diagnosed with stage four breast cancer, she had to undergo a mastectomy quickly. We weren't prepared at all for her recovery, and it meant some last-minute scrambling to get the supplies that we needed. Since we didn't have much time to plan, it was challenging to determine exactly what we had to have, and we ended up buying things we didn't really need. I took my experience and put all of it into this site. I hope that my experience and information helps you to prepare for your or your loved one's upcoming surgery and breast cancer treatment.
