Survivor since 2007
Great to hear! I also wear a prosthetic and after 5 years, it feels totally "normal". It is quite comfortable and I never go without it. It just feels weird if I don't where it. I am glad to hear you have found a way to be more comfortable. It sounds like the vast majority here have reconstruction whereas I never even considered it. This is probably because of my age but It is nice to hear of another woman who did not have reconstruction. When I was about to have the mastectomy, my surgeon who was a breast surgeon, asked me about reconstruction. I told her I had decided against it. She said she could make a
"seat" where my prosthesis would fit. She did.... it is an area that the triangular prosthesis fits against my chest wall. I don't regret my decision as for me, it works well.
Patricia, I am glad you are feeling better! Take care, Sharon
