Best of luck to you both for tomorrow's operations. I so understand the feeling of actually looking forward to it - it does seem a strange thing to say and feel but the surgery moves you on in such a big and positive way. The way things are organised across the country seems to vary so much and everyone appears to have a slightly different experience. I feel so lucky that my hospital has a specialist Breast Unit which is headed up by my wonderful surgeon who specialises in cosmetic, oncoplastic and breast reconstructive surgery. I have seen him and my breast cancer nurse at every appointment and I've never seen anyone else, no oncologist or plastics surgeon. It's worked so well for me and they've always been very open, honest and detailed - good and bad. Louise, you mentioned bras. I'm sure you're sorted now but I've been really around the block with this. I'm a standard 38B M&S. I ended up with 40C compression bras from Amoena - I had a 40C zip up post surgery bra from M&S which felt way too tight on the band post surgery and now are too baggy on the cups. The Amoena bras were beautifully soft and very adjustable as things changed - well worth the investment (my BCN gave me a discount code). I'm now finding my usual 38B bras tight on the band so I've gone for some band expanders - not prepared to invest in any more bras until things have completely settled down. Hope all goes well with your surgeries tomorrow and look forward to hearing from you both when you're feeling up to it.
