Breathing and circulation exercises after surgery (wound on side) - Cancer Research UK

This video from Cancer Research UK is a guide to breathing and circulation exercises after surgery when the wound is on your side. It does not replace what your health carers tell you. You should always follow the advice they give you and check with them before doing the exercises. It shows you how to breathe deeply, cough and do leg exercises to help to prevent chest infections and blood clots which can develop when you aren't moving about as you would normally.
