Double Mastectomy Survivor at 80 Trains like a Champion
By Leatrice of Los Angeles
Santa Monica, California: “My Life is Mine Once More–I Feel More Like Me”
“A few years ago I had to go through a radical double mastectomy. Everything in my life changed. Though the surgery was successful, my life had changed. I had such difficulty reaching, bending, lifting; Basic functioning on daily activities was challenged at best. For example, I couldn’t reach for the same dishes. My upper body was stiff and my arms were unable to straighten or stretch! Due to the surgery, I found a downward cascading affect on my bodies performance and started having horrible back problems. I was forced to use a cane. The epidurals recommended by my Doctor for pain relief, did not provide me a long term solution. I was frustrated with Physical Therapy, and at my wits end!
When I started training using the AB-Inforcer*, I no longer needed my cane to help me walk. I started stretching and using weights, and I am no longer bent over walking because I am aware of better posture and my balance has even improved. I can reach, bend, sit, and do my life and FEEL MORE LIKE ME!!! My life is mine once more!”
