Hi My dears...sorry you are here ..hope I can assist like you 10 years ago now.... I considered why not to have rads so chose mastectomy
My surgery was over done n dusted.
Just retired .....got on with university degree travellin and camping .
some are lucky ..no pain and quick healing and no lymph involvement
First couple of years and some times in cold winter I wear a compression singlet to stop lymphoedema on chest wall
Heavier boob does need to be fitted from a specialist fitter for a good bra and In Australia the breast protetheis is gov claimable each two years
Livein beach area some humidity..
At home no bra just cotton loose tops
Beach walking/ swimming lightweight foob insert gel
Some swimmers I have sewn in my own fibrefill and no need to remove
I found that I had to remove the side seam plastic boning from bras as it rubbed side where I had Lymphedema
Had to use massage to chest wall
Winter have wear wool vests and foob more often as chest gets tooo cold
All the best
Bright in hope
At present making my own lace and soft cotton camisoles
