I have a question regarding the item Knitted Knockers. I was told the
prostheses must have some weight to it in order to hold it down and in
place in the mastectomy bra. I am most anxious to try the knitted items,
but wonder how they stay “down”, where your breast line is? Thanks,.

Thank you. I will definitely do that. Although I think I might have to tell my Rheumatologist, as my Primary Dr. doesn’t seem to offer much dialog about the foot pain.

i do have Perepheral Neuropathy in my feet, but this is more burning it seems. Would it also contribute to overall horrific soreness of my feet?

Jul 12, 2016 · Chose not to get breast reconstruction in Breast Cancer

Hello, I turned 70 on July 10th. Twenty eight years ago, I had a
preventative bi-lateral mastectomy at Mayo Clinic. I later found I was one
of the first they had ever done. I chose reconstruction and had nothing
but discomfort and pain. Two years ago, I had the implants removed and I
am very satisfied and comfortable. I was fitted for double prosthesis and
yes, they are hot, however, once used to them, they are not too bad. I
have gradually been going without them, and use them mainly for “going out
occasions”. I had residual skin flaps and I still have my own nipples, but
the look is not pretty, in close fitting clothing. I have tried camisoles,
and undershirt type things, and the puckering of my clothing across the
front, remains. I am gradually learning to live with it, and trying to
feel less self-conscious. It is difficult. I am on your journey, my
friend. Be brave, is all I can offer you for advice. Cherril
