Managing Swelling and Scar Tissu

I am Shannon.

"Cynthia Shechter was my occupational/rehab therapist during the hardest days of pain and recovery following a bilateral mastectomy and lymphadenectomies. When I first met her within weeks of surgery and at the beginning of treatment, I couldn't lift my arms from my sides and was struggling with basic tasks that required arm mobility. I also had high risks related to lymphedema and very concerned about managing that possibility.

Cynthia took the most measured steps possible to usher me through the pain and recovery of getting my upper body functioning again, and with great care to avoid lymphedema risks. She took the time to speak with my surgeons and understand the particulars of my complicated surgeries and she treated me like the strong version of myself that she had never actually met before.

Within weeks I was able to open doors, lift a purse and hug my kids. It was a long journey from there, but she restored my motion, my strength and my independence in doing life's smaller tasks on my own. That confidence was a critical part of my recovery.

I couldn't be more honored to recommend her services to any woman or family enduring these challenges. It truly took a village to put me back together, and Cynthia was one of those unexpected gifts in that process who has the talent of both pushing and caring for you in ways you didn't even know you needed.

Wishing her practice and her team all the best."
