RESPONSE TO STRESS Worrying about our children comes with parenting. Sometimes, we may even feel our children’s stress as the new school year approaches. Our task is to help our children manage stress rather than to remove their worries. This is not to suggest that when challenges present, we just say, “It is what it […]

1 2 My name is Susan Dennehy and I am the Clinical Nurse Specialist at the Winnipeg Regional  Health Authority Breast Health Centre. 3 Each year many women and a few men undergo surgery for the treatment of breast cancer.  Coping with breast cancer and breast cancer surgery can be challenging and overwhelming  for you and your family. Yo u may be feeling a range of emotions such as uncertainty, fear, sadness and a lack of  control. These feelings can be hard to deal with but they are normal and common.  Remember that there is no “right way” or “wrong way” to deal with cancer and with  surgery. Not all people react the same way or need the same kind of help. It is important to  know  you are not alone. We are here to care for you and connect you with the resources  and services you need at this time.  4 During the presentation, I will describe different surgical approaches and procedures used  for breast cancer. I will discuss how you can prepare for surgery and what you can expect  following your operation. I will be talking about how to care for yourself when you go home  from the hospital.  5 Later in the presentation we will refer to the booklet titled, “Your Breast Surgery Guide”,  which you should have received in your Before Surgery package at the Breast Health Centre  or you can view on‐line on our website.  Yo u can pause the video now to find your copy of the  surgery guide to have it with you to  refer to during the presentation.  6 I will now talk with you about two common breast cancer surgeries and some procedures  that you may have been offered as part of your surgical treatment. The first surgery I will  explain is a lumpectomy and then I will discuss mastectomy surgery. 7 Lumpectomy surgery may also be referred to as breast conserving surgery.  Think of the tumor as the lump within your breast. During lumpectomy surgery, your  surgeon removes “the lump” or tumor and an area of tissue surrounding the lump called a  margin. The rest of the breast remains intact. The surgery  usually takes 1‐2 hours. The size of the incision will vary depending on the size  of the tumor and its location in the breast. The wound edges are brought together and the  wound is closed with dissolvable stitches.  After lumpectomy surgery, a cavity or pocket is left where the tissue  was removed. That  cavity will fill with normal body fluid. Yo u may notice the fluid either by feeling or hearing it  moving around at the incision site. This is normal and overtime the fluid reabsorbs into the  breast and is replaced by scar tissue. Depending on your type of breast cancer,  lumpectomy surgery usually is followed by  radiation therapy to reduce the chances of cancer recurring.  The next image is a photo of a woman who has had a lumpectomy. 8 Photos courtesy of Show Me (2nd Edition), A Photo Collection of Breast Cancer Survivors’  Lumpectomies, Mastectomies, Breast Reconstructions and Thoughts on Body Image […]
