Post mastectomy you will have a new shape – ‘here’s to boy chests’, said no one!!
Losing your boobs is hard, a big loss and extremely sad, like losing a best friend who is never coming back.
So, you thought your new chest would be straight up and down right? – NOPE.
As recovery time continues, the area where your boobs once were will become slightly concave, giving you some new and interesting curves!
Be kind to your newbie sensitive areas, use soft bras, moisturise and use bio oil which will help reduce the scarring.
You may also feel the presence of phantom boobs and a tickly nipple that you want to scratch! The oddest feeling ever, but it’s very real.
Embracing your new shape takes time. It’s different, but still you.
