I have decided to have my implant removed. 1st encapsulated…this replacement just doesn’t feel right. 

Im not a young woman,So not concern figure wise. However I would like to know more about prosthetics 

any advice welcome. 




Hi Coleen


It’s Emily here from Breast Cancer Care.


While you’re waiting for replies on here, I just thought I’d let you know that one of our email volunteers Pearl chose not to have a reconstruction, and has worn a prosthesis for many years. You’d be welcome to email her for some tips and suggestions:


You might also find a few more people in your situation in the ‘Surgery’ part of the Forum, here:

Definitely wear prothesis. Make sure you have well fitting bra. I call it my body armour but so so comfortable and natural looking. Go for it. Iris?
