Re: For my nan a few years on post surgery bra advice

Hi Daisy I am in a similar position and have found the soft bras from Asda absolutely great. They have padded inserts which are removable but I find they even up my lip sidedness really well. They are the only bras I have felt comfortable in since my treatment ended last year. I hope that helps your Nan. Good luck with your wedding plans x

Hello Daisy10,  What a lovely grand daughter you must be. There is something called "knitted knockers" which a lovely lady makes, which would be nice and soft for her, sorry I don't know the email/details but am sure someone on here will soon let you know. Good luck

Hi Daisy10,
If she rings her breast care nurse I'm sure they would be able to help. I got a soft one so that I could adjust the filling to suit whilst my expander implant was being inflated. Very comfortable!
Good luck in your search, and all best wishes for your wedding

For my nan a few years on post surgery bra advice

Hello, 

I'm looking for some advice on post surgery bras for my nan. She had breast cancer a couple of years ago and had a lumpectomy then radiotherapy. After the radiotherapy was finished I believe she had a meeting with a breast care nurse but wasn't offered a prosthesis as there wasn't much tissue loss. A few years on her breast tissue has shrunk due to the radiotherapy treatment, and her breast is now half the size of the other and she no longer feels comfortable. What I'm asking really is can we go back to the hospital for a prosthesis being so long after the surgery or would we have to sort it ourselves? We live in Norwich and I'm finding it hard looking for where we would get one if we can't go back to the hospital. Im getting married next year and I want her to feel comfortable in what shes wearing on the day, and not shy away from photos.

Any advice would be appreciated, sorry its a long first post!

Thanks
