Treatment Tips

During Tiffany's breast cancer treatment, she tried a variety of products to help her be as comfortable as possible through the process. Below are some recommendations based upon her experience.

Chemotherapy:

Have a chemo bag that is ready to go at all times. This will help you stay organized during chemo. Make sure to bring a blanket to your chemo treatments, as the treatment can make you cold. Tiffany kept her chemo blanket in the car. Wear comfy clothes that allow you to sit comfortably in chairs. Tiffany drank one SmartWater everyday that she was in treatment to prevent dehydration.  
 

Surgery:

Tiffany lived in Victoria Secret button-up cotton pajamas after surgery! Make sure they are button-up and pullover style. And after surgery, make sure to stock up on button-up blouses, as they help hide the drains. Tiffany orders a size up to allow plenty of room. What goes well with button-up blouses? Soft and stretchy leggings - a great way to stay comfortable for post-operation appointments. Tiffany also purchased a size larger bra, without underwire. She slept most nights in a bra, because her radiated breasts felt better while wearing a bra. 

To help with the scars, Tiffany used Hydra-Oil, which is moisturizing and helps eliminate the appearance of scars.
To help with the burns, Tiffany was addicted to Aquaphor, which is a gentle healing ointment you can purchase at most drug stores.
