Exercise recommendations day 1+ after Sentinel node lumpectomy x2 surgeries

tinacap77 Member Posts: 6

Not quite 24 hour post surgery including 2 lumpectomies and sentinel node. (All left breast)
Unfortunately it is Memorial Day Weekend, so hard to get a hold of my surgeon. I am looking for information some of you were told about what kind of exercise, movement, range of motion etc. are allowed/recommended starting Day 1 post surgery. I know “no vacuuming” but can I lift my arms over my head to put a t shirt on? What gentle exercises can I do? I know no resistive/weight exercises? Thank you for your help. Post op discharge instructions were vague.
