View Full Version : swimming rehabilitation after mastectomy

July 14th, 2005, 12:49 AM
My friend recently had a bilateral mastectomy. She wants to start building up her muscles by doing some activities in the pool, but she doesn't have the money to pay for a personal trainer. She's not ready to start swimming, but eventually wants to get there, and would like me to help as she rehabilitates herself. I have been swimming most of my life and done some coaching as well, but this seems to take a specialized knowledge about rehab. I would love to talk with someone who specializes in this kind of rehab. Is there anyone out there with this kind of knowledge, who could provide ideas for her (and me to help her) as she gets going again?
