Thank you all so much, you have all made this process so much easier to navigate through. It is still sinking in i must admit. Thanks Ladybowler for the suggestion about the partial prothesis post. This is on my mind alot. Im still wearing a sports bra but i expect will start to want to wear my normal bras soon and most of them that ive tried on so far just wont work without some extra help.
I will check in on you all to see how you are doing now and then.
Big hugs to all and best wishes for your ongoing and future treatment.
Oh that is fantastic news, I am sooo relieved and pleased for you mate, wow 🙂 🙂
Now I can not off hand remember but I am sure it was either Charys of Dizzybee (apologies to whichever one it wasnt) who got a partial prosthesis, if you post on the Progesterone thread one of them will be able to tell you about it
PF I will be thinking of you.
i thought I was getting my results next thurs, but hospital called me today to say my results are in and my consultant has a clinic on Saturday. So my app is at 9am on Saturday!
I'm now feeling like you PF, I'm so nervous now. But like you I just want to know what the results are and get on with the next steps.
I hope you get some sleep tonight.
Hi, just joined the site today, recently been diagnosed with breast cancer, having a mastectomy later on this month, considering a ADM implant...Acellular Dermal Matrix. Has anyone had this?
I've just had a mx, so can't help you, but I wanted to send you great big hugs.
Someone, will be along soon who has had the same procedure and I'm sure they will be able to put your mind at rest.
I can not answer your questions, hopefully someone on here will be able to help you but I just wanted to send you a squishy hug and let you know you are in my thoughts
Loads of love
Yes, quite a lot of pain. I went round with my heart cushion under my arm for at least 3 weeks and couldn't sleep on that side for 2 weeks.
it has got better, but is still tender and painful just under the armpit where the SNB scar starts and coming under my non boob.
that was exactly the same with me, am still doing the exercises occasionally because I I get a bit of ache with using the computer during the day and it seems to help xx
That's excellent news Rach.
You dance away, we have to enjoy these small little victories- it gets us ready for the next bit.
You must celebrate with your favourite food tonight 😂😂
Is the reason you are going to be in for 1/2 days perhaps because of you having a partial reconstruction? One of the other ladies on here might be able to help you on this one.
