Hi all, I had a mastectomy 9 weeks ago without re construction and I am using a 'sublime'prosthesis from the' hospital store cupboard' which I am finding heavy , sweaty and uncomfortable to wear. I have an appointment in 2 weeks to have it assessed and as my time with the fitter will be limited I wondered if anyone had any advice e.g. would anyone know which prosthesis were available on NHS that could possibly be ordered for me rather than just taking what is available from the store. I am not in a position to buy one privately and even if I was how would you know which would be the right one? Even though I am 38D I am very short stature and the prosthesis I have been given bulges out under arm on one firm hospital issue bra, and squeezes upwards in my softer more comfortable post surgery bra. As I will be stuck with it forever I need to get it right, so can any of you lovely ladies help please.
