Hi Pabbie, I am 2.5 weeks out from a bilateral mastectomy.
I did wonder how weird it would be to have my heart sort of "right there", no longer protected by a breast. I have found it to be far less noticeable than I thought it would be. I thought it through more after surgery, after all my heart is behind a nice protective rib cage and a thin layer of muscle that they didn't mess with. So that might apply to your worries too...your heart has its own nice little spot, and your breast is separated from it by a sort of wall.
I am 50, happy with my flatness.
Lots of ladies over in the Living without Reconstruction can tell you more stories, and there are uni ladies too. All the best to you!
