Rellita, Jezza Serafin, Terence Introduction A hernia occurs when part of an organ pushes through a weak point in the wall of the body cavity that normally holds it.

Therefore breast feeding was highly encouraged to decrease DVT’S or what was considered “milk leg”. Etiology: (description of the cause of the disease, what organs/tissue are affected, what happens to the normal physiology (pathophysiology)?) Deep Vein is mainly caused by a combination of the slowing of the blood and increased clotting in the blood, although there are other factors that can cause clotting such as trauma. Rudolf Virchow (1821-1902) came up with Virchow’s Triad which includes Hypercoagulability (increased clotting), Hemodynamic Changes (slowing of the blood), and Endothelial injury/dysfunction (trauma). It occurs more in males than women and in those 60 years of age and older.
Tissue fluid bathes the body's cells, drains into the lymphatic system and then circulates again.

ABSTRACT “Coping Strategies refer to the specific efforts, both behavioral and psychological, that people employ to master, tolerate, reduce, or minimize stressful events” (Taylor 1998). “Posttraumatic Growth refers to positive psychological change experienced as a result of the struggle with highly challenging life circumstances” (Tedeschi & Calhoun 2004). Mastectomy is the surgical removal of partial or the entire breast tissue. The objective of the study is to determine if there are significant differences and relationships in coping strategies between middle aged women (45-55 years) and older women (56-66 years) who have undergone mastectomy and to compare the levels of posttraumatic growth in them. A purposive sampling method was used
