I got the Brava machine on Friday and am on my third time of wearing it. I wore it during the day once and at night once. During the day is going to work out best for me because the suction broke on the seal last night and I didn't even hear the alarm. So I didn't get a full night of suction last night. That's 10 hours wasted. I didn't see any redness on my skin so it must of been off for awhile.
The dome is tricky to get used to putting on. You really have to pull around the edges to get a good seal. I have a concave area left over from my masectomy and it is giving me a hard time getting a good seal on that area.
I was worried about the adhesive on the domes, like being allergic to it. I have trouble with adhesives and so far so good, no irritation.
You really need two people to do this. MY fiance attaches it while I hold it in place and then he has to help me put the special bra on too.
I am wearing it now and I can feel the slight suction on my breast. Not uncomfortable, just can feel a slight pulling on my skin. That is how you know you have a good seal.
Well, that is what is going on now with it. Will post more and answer any questions anyone has for me about this.
I have to wear it 10 hours at a time for three weeks and then for 3 straight days and nights before my surgery on the 25th.
Love and Light,
