Mastectomy cushion


I wondered if anyone could recommend a mastectomy cushion - there are quite a few on Amazon, but I just thought it would be better to get a recommendation on here. 



Hello k_123 

Thank you for your post. 

A mastectomy cushion or pillow can help with comfort and support following breast surgery and, as you say, there are many different ones to choose from. 

Some people choose to use the pillows and cushions they have at home already, but others find that using specially made mastectomy pillows to support the wound can help reduce pain or discomfort following breast surgery. 

You could ask you breast nurse if they advise any specific type of pillow and where to get it from as they may know of a local service. Choosing a pillow, you feel is right for you in shape, design and colour according to your personal preference may be a good idea also. 

Talking to someone who has had a similar experience can be helpful and our Someone Like Me service can match you with a trained volunteer who’s had a similar experience to you. They’ll be a phone call or email away to answer your questions, offer support or simply listen. 

You can ring the Someone Like Me team on 0114 263 6490 or email them at, so they can then match you to your volunteer.
