Would someone help me out after having a mastectomy and not having a recontruction with a false breast? This is what I have, being flat on my right side after a mastectomy in 2010. I don't like my false breast as I don't want to accept it. Why? It is because I lose when I take my bra off and gain the weight when I put my bra on. This to me is annoying. I find also when I lay in bed it is OK to be on my right side as the left breast is heavy and satisfying to me. Then if I lay on my left side it is upsetting as my right breast has gone. I can't cope with what I have said to you. I find that others who don't have the experience like this I don't connect to them. Please help me soon as this is quite upsetting me so much. Glenys.
