ABSTRACT

The paper selected from January 2019 to June 2020 to conduct individualized face-to-face in-depth interviews with breast cancer patients who have been doing home exercises for upper limb lymphedema more than 3 times a week, and analysed the data using content analysis. The purpose of this operation is to describe the home exercise rehabilitation experience of breast cancer rehabilitation patients to prevent upper limb lymphedema, and to provide feasible and operable home exercise rehabilitation information for clinical medical staff to guide the exercise rehabilitation program of breast cancer patients after discharge from the hospital. The study found that including 100 interviewees who can provide rich experience, extract the exercise experience of breast cancer rehabilitation patients to prevent upper extremity lymphedema, including exercise type, name, time, frequency, intensity, precautions and detailed actionable Sexual home sports rehabilitation experience. This study refines and describes the exercise rehabilitation experience of breast cancer rehabilitation patients to prevent upper extremity lymphedema, enriches and refines the current behavioural guidelines for breast cancer rehabilitation patients to prevent upper extremity lymphedema, and helps to deepen the medical staff's prevention of upper limb lymphedema for breast cancer rehabilitation patients The understanding of the actual situation of lymphedema provides reference materials for medical staff to develop preventive intervention measures for lymphedema.
