Breast Prosthesis - allergy to latex and adhesives
After almost 4 years, I've decided to get a prosthesis. I've been looking around on the web and am pleasantly surprised at how much choice there is now than 4 years ago. I was 38 when first diagnosed and was shocked at how ugly the bras were and how heavy the prostheses felt (I'm a 36B) when I first looked around. This was part of the reason I decided against getting one.
In the past couple of years, I've really developed an allergy to latex and adhesives. I'm wondering if this will affect me in the purchase of a new prosthesis. I've been reading about the new ones that "stick" (which I assume uses some kind of adhesive) and wonder also if the silicone prosthesis have any latex in them. If you have similar allergies and have noticed any reactions, I'd appreciate your advice.
Any feedback would be helpful.
Also, if anyone knows of a good fitter in the Greater Toronto Area, I would greatly appreciate it. It seems to me that a proper fit is essential.
