It's been five days since my oncoplastic lumpectomy, recovery is going well, but one thing I am noticing is.... holy mackerel is my skin sensitive! I can't stand the thought of wearing anything but the softest, gentlest fabrics. Two sports bras that I bought before surgery went straight into the trashcan-- they may as well have been sandpaper.
The post surgery bra they gave me at the hospital is doing it's job, but I have covered all of the incisions with layers of gauze on top of the steristrips, with more gauze tucked under the band for extra cushioning.
I really need to order a few more sports bras-- I assume I will live in them for the next few weeks. Any recommendations? I heard good things about Natori. The kind that fasten in the front, obviously, no scratchiness, no underwires. If I could hire kittens to sit on my chest I would.
Thanks in advance for any recs!
