What risks are involved in a woman using a sauna/hot tub after mastectomy?

The risk of using a hot tub immediately after any surgery is infection. In my practice, I ask women to wait 6 weeks before getting in a hot tub after surgery.

How long should a woman (or man) avoid getting deep tissue massage after mastectomy?

How long a patient waits after mastectomy before getting deep tissue massage is variable. In general, somewhere between 3 weeks and 3 months.

Will a chest tattoo increase chances of lymphedema?
