Note.....I come in the '2 fried eggs' breast category, am totally unaware of the prothesis and you certainly can't tell. Had I been bigger breasted I may have thought differently.
Hi cejayb i have just been told i have breast cancer and am due to have a mastectomy on the 15th april, so very scared if you dont mind me asking how did you feel about yourself after your mastectomy??? and also if you have a partner or husband how is he coping and feeling towards you????
I am very lucky i have a very loving and supporting partner but am so very scared he will see me in a different way after my op...we have only been together a year so its a fairly new relationship for us to both have to go through all this....
Hope you are feeling well take care and hope you dont mind me asking you a couple of questions....
