The short- and long-term benefits of post-discharge physiotherapy regimens after breast cancer surgery are debatable.

As hospital stay duration has decreased substantially, the need for post-discharge physiotherapy may also have changed. Thus, the indication for and type of rehabilitation programmes need to be evaluated.
