Hello, I joined this group a few weeks ago, but this is my first time posting. I was diagnosed with breast cancer of my left breast in September. I had breast conserving surgery and they removed 40mm of invasive cancer, plus my margins had several DCIS and one out of two nodes had cancer. I went back for surgery in October for a single mastectomy and axillary clearance. I have had MRI’s, CT’s and Bone Scans and my surgeon is confident that it isn’t in my right breast or anywhere else. I have already had my first of four chemo cycles, CT. Are there any other women out there who have had a single mastectomy? I am a public health patient, and initially I was not intending on having reconstruction, however I am struggling with trying to make my breasts look the same under clothes. At the moment I am only using the Berlei Bra form and one which my mum knitted me (I use the knitted one mostly), and will get fitted for a prosthesis early next year. I am just finding it really uncomfortable, and would love to hear from others who are similar to me. Thank you xx
