Shooting rifles and Cancer

I am not sure if this is the correct place to post this, and if it is not please feel free to move it.

My wife had her lymph nodes removed on her right side when she had breast cancer. she loves to shoot and we have been unsure if the recoil from the shotguns and rifles would cause issues for her.

She does just fine with handguns, but they don't recoil into her pocket where her lymph nodes have been removed. What worries us is that if she damages the area there is no Lymphatic system to assist in healing from a bruise.

We thought about a thick recoil pad, but still not sure.

I think I articulated that correctly.

Thanks for any input.
