Re: exercise with a prosthesis

Thanks Gilly. I've never heard of knitted knockers but it made me smile just to read the words. Thanks!

Re: exercise with a prosthesis

Evening Sueh55

 

Another suggestion i had a knitted prosthesis.  Google Knitted Knockers.  Knitted by lovely volunteers and you can weight them.  One lady at my Zumba has some small pebbles in hers (in the middle of the soft stuffing)  and i got some beads from the craft shop which worked well.  This meant i could wash them.  I have since had reconstruction but managed well at Zumba / Spin, i never bothered when swimming cos i don't reckon they would have been ok in the water....  I have forwarded all my prosthesis (my breast size changed so in all i had 3) to Hospices of Hope.  I know other ladies on the site have used Knitted Knockers.

Thanks Kess Unfortunately I find I've suddenly got a right breast that's much higher than the left one when I do that!

Re: exercise with a prosthesis

Hi

I used a beanie boob in the pocket of sports cropped tops ( the ones with removable pads). Lighter than silicon but don't ride up like a softie. I got mine from website All about the Girl & also use them for swimming.

exercise with a prosthesis

I have a silicone prosthesis following a right bside mastectomy. Trying to get back to dancing and badminton. Prosthesis heats up , makes me drenched in sweat and rubs scar.

What do others use forexercise. I'm desperate to get back to reasonable fitness but this is a huge obstacle.
