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,.
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
