I am now two weeks post op from my left sided single mastectomy. Today I tried to go out wearing a sports bra and a soft fiberfill form. I was so miserable, that I ended up removing both in the car. It was so uncomfortable and sore having it next to my skin. Will I always go bra-less with a uni-boob? Looks kind of wierd, but that is how I am most comfortable right now.
I called my aunt who also had a single mastectomy 2 years ago. She said that she makes trips to the bathroom to continually adjust her "foob". She said it keeps riding to the middle of her chest. This sounds so depressing to me.
Please tell me how you have adjusted and let me know what I can expect in the future when my incision is fully healed.
(I can't help but wondering if I should have had a double mastectomy, but can't imagine feeling this sore on both sides)
Thank you for insight and thoughts.
