You ask about compression tights following your DIEP reconstruction. Some surgeons will advise the use of support pants which are available from high street stores and online but your surgeon may have a particular type that they would recommend. Your breast care nurse or team will be able to suggest a suitable option if this is what is needed in your particular case.
Talking to someone who has had a similar experience can be helpful and our Someone Like Me service can arrange for one of our volunteers to talk to you by email or telephone. Our volunteers have had a personal experience of breast cancer and are trained to provide support.
