Objective: The study was conducted to assess the Effectiveness of Post-Operative Exercises on Upper Limb Function among Clients with Modified Radical Mastectomy at selected Cancer Hospitals, Hyderabad, Telangana. Study objectives were to (i) Assess the upper limb function among the clients with Modified Radical Mastectomy before the intervention. (ii) Demonstrate post-operative upper limb function exercises to the clients with breast cancer posted for Modified Radical Mastectomy. (iii) Assess the effectiveness of post-operative exercises on upper limb function among clients with Modified Radical Mastectomy.
