Post Double Mastectomy Emotional Recovery: The First Few Weeks at Home


After a double mastectomy it is important to give yourself time to heal both physically and emotionally. Physical recovery time from a double mastectomy can vary from person to person, but it typically takes 4 to 6 weeks (​1)​ . While you are dealing with the very real physical healing from a major surgical procedure, you will also be coming to terms with a flood of emotions that may hit you once home.

Every post mastectomy journey will be different; allow yourself time to go through this very personal emotional recovery.
